Sitting Bull Sitting Bull was born in Grand River, South Dakota in 1831. Some
say he was the most powerful and famous Native American chief of all time. When he was young, he did not show talent in warfare, but later he fought honorably. For that he was named Sitting Bull.
When gold was discovered in the Black Hills, men started to descend upon his land. The Black Hills were a sacred place to his tribe. He felt he had to defend his land. He led the Sioux Indians in the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876 against the Americans and General Custer.
In the end he was kidnapped and shot in the head in 1890 while resisting the police officers that came into his house. They felt Sitting

land. His famous quote was, "I would rather die an Indian, than live a
