Sitting Bull

 

Sitting Bull was a stalwart defender of his people's lands and lifeways, which were threatened by the intrusion of white settlers and miners on treaty guaranteed tribal territories, and by US government efforts to concentrate Indians on reservations.  These violations provoked war in 1876, in which Sitting bull and other war leaders masterminded the defeat of US troops at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

Faced by a massive US military counter offensive, Sitting Bull and his 4000 followers fled to Canada, but returned in 1881.  After two years as a prisoner of war, Sitting Bull settled on the Standing Rock reservation in present day North Dakota, where he became a successful farmer, and later toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.  Yet he remained a staunch critic of US Indian policy, and became an apostle of the Ghost dance---an Indian religious revival movement, which spooked white officials at the Standing Rock reservation.  In 1890, Indian police stormed his cabin, sparking a bloody shootout in which Sitting Bull was killed.  He was buried at Fort Yates in North Dakota.

During  suppression of the Indian nations persists even to today the idea if an Indian Uprising and restoration of their cultures and ways.  Maybe that will be the last word.

Guess who's wife wasn't born in the US.  Guess whose wife's family got here through "chain migration."  Guess who the moron is.

Wow, it's like you were reading my mind.  Feeling the beginning of a thread lock here.  Main thing is Washington, DC that is, sucks.  These people are more to destroying each other than getting anything accomplished, with us in mind.  Don't care what side of the fence you're on.  We need better leaders, period.  I am not one of those people.

Yeah, it's been getting bigger every year.  Division of the parties, the people, no unity, bipartisanship, etc.  Sucks in my eyes.  I do like Klipsch and tunes though....  Anyone else?
