Rowdy (died March 29, 1893) was a United States Army Indian scout and a recipient of the United States military's highest decoration—the Medal of Honor—for his actions in the Indian Wars of the western United States.

Rowdy, a Sergeant in Company A of the Indian Scouts, was involved in an engagement in Arizona on March 7, 1890. He was awarded the Medal of Honor two months later, on May 15, 1890, for his "ravery in action with Apache Indians."

Rowdy died three years after earning the medal and was buried in Santa Fe National Cemetery, Santa Fe, New Mexico. His grave can be found in section A, grave 894.
