Tribute to the Great Sitting Bull - More than 130 years after his death, Sitting Bull (ca. 1831 - 1890) remains as one of the greatest Native Americans who ever lived. A Oglala Lakota Sioux Holy Man from the Hunkpapa Band, Sitting Bull bravely resisted the U.S. Government’s efforts to take over tribal land in the Black Hills in what is now South Dakota. Do to his daunting force of will, a confederation of Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Indians met and defeated the U.S. Army’s First of the 7th Cavalry led by Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer during the battles of the Little Big Horn in Montana in the summer of 1876 during the Great Sioux War. Considered to be the “Hostile Chief” among the Indian Nations, Sitting Bull refused to give in to American Government demands. He was the last of the plains Indians Chiefs to surrender to the authority of the United States Government. With food and resources scarce, Sitting Bull surrendered to the U.S. Army on July 20, 1881 in exchange for amnesty for his people. He was a prisoner of war incarnated at Fort Randall, South Dakota for two years before being relocated to Standing Rock Reservation. Soon the government fearing Sitting Bull would join the Reservation’s Ghost Dance Movement and incite rebellion. Indian Service Agent James McLaughlin at Fort Yates ordered Sitting Bull's arrest. On December 15, 1890, Standing Rock Reservation Indian Police awoke Sitting Bull at 6 A.M. and arrested him. He refused to go quietly and a crowd gathered. During an ensuing struggle Sitting Bull was murdered. He was shot in the head and chest and died instantly by Standing Rock Policemen Lieutenant Bull Head. At age Fifty-One Sitting Bull lay dead. Two weeks after his death, the U.S. Army massacred 150 unarmed Lakota Sioux Women, Children and Elders at Wounded Knee in the final fight between U.S. Government Troops and the Lakota Sioux Nation bring a close to the Great Sioux War.
