The Great Native American Chiefs

Sitting Bull (?-1890)

Sitting Bull

Sitting Bull is the best remembered of the Sioux and Cheyenne leaders who fought the U.S. Army in the last great organized resistance to white domination of the plains of the Dakotas and Montana. Along with the Sioux chiefs Crazy Horse, Gall, Crow King, Hump and Fast Bull, Sitting Bull confronted General George Custer and the 7th Cavalry regiment at Little Bighorn; in less than one half hour the general and more than 200 men of his regiment were killed. Sitting Bull was a dynamic leader and one of the most able in Native American history. He was killed by members of the Indian Police in 1890.
