Sitting Bull, c. 1831 - 15 Dec 1890

Date:
c. 1885
Exhibition Label:
Born near the Grand River, in present-day South Dakota
Beginning in the 1860s, Sitting Bull gained a reputation as one of the most formidable warriors during the three-decade-long conflict between the Lakota nation and the United States. On repeated occasions he led campaigns to rid the growing American presence from traditional tribal lands. In 1874, when officials tried to persuade a group of chiefs to cede the Black Hills-where George Armstrong Custer had recently discovered gold-Sitting Bull intervened to stop the transaction. Two years later, his forces would rout Custer's Seventh Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, an event that prompted American officials to expand their military commitment in the West. Sitting Bull and a group of followers eluded authorities until 1881, when defections and a dwindling food supply compelled him to surrender. In 1885 Sitting Bull traveled for four months with William Cody's Wild West Show, during which time this photograph is believed to have been taken.

Exhibition Label:
Having first battled American soldiers in the 1860s, Sitting Bull gained a reputation as one of the most hostile warriors during the three-decade-long military conflict between the Lakota and the U.S. Army. On repeated occasions he led campaigns to rid the growing presence of Americans from traditional tribal lands. When, in 1874, officials tried to persuade a group of friendly chiefs to cede the Black Hills-where George A. Custer had recently discovered gold-Sitting Bull intervened to stop this transaction. Two years later his forces routed Custer's Seventh Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, an event that prompted U.S. officials to expand their military commitment in the West. Sitting Bull and a group of followers eluded U.S. authorities until 1881, when defections and a dwindling food supply compelled him to surrender. This photograph was taken not long afterwards, during his imprisonment at Fort Randall, in present-day South Dakota.
