A member of the Hunkpapa band of the Teton Sioux Indians, Sitting Bull became a warrior of much renown and was eventually acknowledged as a leader of all the Teton Sioux. A noble and just leader but misunderstood by the white man.
He was influential in the destruction of Custer's forces at the Little Big Horn. His instance that his people be allowed to participate in the ghost dances of the late 1880's eventually led to his being murdered by Indian police in an attempted arrest at Standing Rock on December 15, 1890. He was sought after by his people for his wise council and support for their activities.
He as buried here but his grave has been vandalized many times. This marker is directly over the grave site.
