  1. 1. Sitting Bull By KOda Aanenson
  2. 2. Sitting Bull <ul><li>What did Sitting Bull do to help our country? </li></ul><ul><li>When was he born/died? </li></ul><ul><li>What was it like when he lived? </li></ul><ul><li>How did Sitting Bull die? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Sitting Bull <ul><li>Sitting Bull was born in 1834 and </li></ul><ul><li>what is now South Dakota. As a boy, he was known as “Hunkeshnee”, which meant slow. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>However, after showing great bravery in a fight against the “Crow Indians”, he received the name “Sitting Bull” from his father for showing bravery and fighting. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Sitting Bull was also the leader of the “Hunkpapa” band of the “Teton Sioux”indians. Also a lot of people thought that Sitting Bull was the leader of the Native Americans at the battle of the “Little Bighorn”, on June 25,1876, also which Lieutenant Colonel George A. Custer died during the “Little Bighorn” battle. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>But, Sitting Bull acted only as the leading medicine man in getting the stuff ready for the battle. Also the year before, Sitting had a thought that all his enemies would be sent into his hands. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>And in the spring of 1876, he led a sun dance at which he told the Native Americans to change their way of fighting. Instead of showing off their bravery, they would lose alll of their land to the white people. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Also this new plan also led to victory of Leatenant Colonel George A. Custer. And after the battle of the Little Bighorn, Sitting Bull and his tribe were driven into Canada. Sitting Bull also returned to the United States in 1881. After two years in confinements at Fort Randall in South Dakota, he lived on the Standing Reservation in South Dakota. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>It may told that Sitting Bull never killed any woman or children. He was a fair fighter, and while not important in battle after his young manhood, Sitting Bull was also the brains of the Sioux resistance. Sitting Bull has been called “medicine man” and a “dreamer”. Strictly speaking, Sitting Bull was neither of these, the white historians are prone to get the two confused. And a medicine man is a doctor or a healer; also a dreamer is an on the go war prophet who leads his war party according to his dream or prediction . </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Also what is called to the whites “ making medicine” in a war time is again a not right conception. Every soldier carries a sack of sacred or lucky charms, supposed to protect the person who carries it alone, but it also has nothing to do with the success of the safety of the party as a whole. Nobody can make any “medicine” to result of a battle, although it has been said that Sitting Bull did this at the battle of the Little Bighorn Battle. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>And during the Fall of 1876, after the fall of Custer, Sitting Bull was trying to be found by the military through the Yellowstone region. And there, in 1890 he encouraged the “Ghost Dance”. The government thought this was an attempt to renew the Native American war’s, and sent Indian police officers to arrest Sitting Bull. Also Sitting Bull and his son were killed in the process, December 15,1890. </li></ul>
