I have been called a savage, a chief and oft times a leader.
Some have called me the embodiment of courage, although to a Crook I did surrender.

Where I was born, there were no enclosures.
In the end, to bring me down, it took 5000 soldiers.

As the "terror of the country", I had a reputation of cruelty and cunning.
My tactics consisted of hitting and then running.

Many movies and stories of me were made.
The memories of me, the most famous of my people, will never fade.

People have spoken ill of me so many times it would give your throat a lump.
Yet sometimes, my name is the last word said when people make a big jump.

Now it's time to give it a try.
Do you know my name; who am I?


Hint

My birth name, Goyathlay, did not last long.
Of me, words were written and put to a medicine song.

The meaning of my birth name is the title of this riddle.
I have but one name for my first, last and middle.
