Moving Robe Woman (Sioux name Tȟašína Máni), also known as Mary Crawler, Her Eagle Robe, She Walks With Her Shawl, and Walking Blanket Woman, was a Hunkpapa Sioux woman who fought against Custer during the Battle of Little Big Horn to avenge her brother, One Hawk, who had been killed. Her father's name was Crawler, and he was also present at the battle. An Oglala Lakota warrior named Fast Eagle claimed that he had held Custer's arms while Moving Robe Woman stabbed him in the back, but several other warriors claimed to have killed Custer, so it is uncertain if she actually killed him, especially since there are no published post-mortem accounts that describe Custer as having stab wounds, and because officers who found his body described him as having died of gunshot wounds.
