Red Horn Bull - Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show

Red Horn Bull was a Sioux Native American who worked in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show circa 1900. William Frederick Cody, aka "Bill Cody", founded Buffalo Bill's Wild West show in Nebraska in 1883. This circus-like attraction toured annually throughout the United States and Europe where visitors would be introduced to actual military soldiers, Native Americans, and performers from around the world who competed in feats of skill, races, sideshows and re-enactments of historic events. One notable native American, Chief Sitting Bull of the Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux, appeared in one of his shows. ... show more
