Description: One of today's lessons is going to be on an iconic figure from United States history. He was born in 1831 in Grand River, South Dakota. His parents named him Jumping Badger at birth but was later changed to Sitting Bull after the battle of the Lakota and Crow people took place back in 1844. It is also known that Sitting Bull had another Native American friend that is popular in our history named 'Crazy Horse'. During the time that his name was changed he was only fourteen years old and it wasn't until 1857 that he was given the role of a tribal chief for the Sioux Indians. Aside from being a tribal chief to the Sioux people, he was also a Shaman and a Holy Man. When the Sioux people ran into a shortage of buffalo, almost all the people starved and it was the driving force that lead them back to the United States and it was in the US that Sitting Bull was taken prisoner at Fort Randall for two years. Later in life he was a main attraction in Buffalo Bill Cody’s Show that toured the United States and later in life Sitting Bull lived out the remainder of his years on the Great Sioux Reservation.
