Sitting Bull | Lakota Holy Man, Chief

Photo Details

Sitting Bull was a Lakota holy man and chief who was killed by Indian agency police while attempting to arrest him for his support of the Ghost Dance.

He was a valiant warrior and led many battles for his people but he also was a performer in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, reportedly earning $50 a week.

You should read up on him, he's a fascinating man.
