SITTING BULL, Sioux chief, born about
1837. He was the principal chief of the Dakota Sioux, who were driven from their
reservation in the Black Hills by miners in 1876, and took up arms against the
whites and friendly Indians, refusing to be transported to the Indian territory.
In June, 1876, they defeated and massacred General George A. Custer's advance
party of General Alfred H. Terry's column, which was sent against them, on
Little Big Horn river, and were pursued northward by General Terry. Sitting
Bull, with a part of his band, made his escape into British territory, and,
through the mediation of Dominion officials, surrendered on a promise of pardon
in 1880. In July and August, 1888, in a conference at Standing Rock, Dakota, he
influenced his tribe to refuse to relinquish Indian lands. - Edited Appletons Encyclopedia, Copyright © 2001 VirtualologyTM

Saturday, December 15th, 2002 was the 112th
Memorial anniversary of the assassination of Tatanka Iyotaka, more commonly
known as Sitting Bull. This inspirational leader was murdered deep within Lakota
Nation territory, a vast area encompassing much of the central and northern
Great Plains. Tatanka Iyotaka in his day was one of the most influential leaders
on the prairie. Today, he is the most recognizable Indian in the world.
Tatanka Iyotaka was not impressed by white society and their version of
civilization. He was shocked and saddened to see the number of homeless people
living on the streets of American cities. He gave money to hungry white people
many times when he was in the large cities.
He counseled his people to be wary of what they accept from white culture. He
saw some things which might benefit his people; but cautioned Indian people to
accept only those things that were useful to us, and to leave everything else
alone. Tatanka Iyotaka was a man of clear vision and pure motivation.
As is often the case with extraordinary people, Tatanka Iyotaka was murdered by
his own people. The colonial force set the weak of his own race against him. A
tactic they continue to use. Indian police today carry on the tradition started
by the assassins of Tatanka Iyotaka and Tasunke Witko. Indian police harassing,
arresting, even killing other Indian people keeps the colony in control. Seeing
that their paychecks, just like those of the elected tribal/band councilors,
come from the colonial government points to that quite clearly.
The unrelenting love for his land and his people caused the enemies of the
Lakota to fear Tatanka Iyotaka. The Hunkpapa Oyate and the Titonwan Lakota had
many powerful leaders, but Tatanka Iyotaka will forever remain the icon of
traditional, full-blood strength and dignity.
