Sitting Bull - Hunkpapa - 1884

Sitting Bull and One Bull, via Flickr.

Bull Head: The police were surrounded by an excited throng. Sitting Bull was furious and called to his men for help. His adopted brother, the Assiniboine captive whose life he saved years ago, was the first to fire and killed Lt. Bull Head, who held Sitting Bull by the arm. Then there was a short conflict, in which Sitting Bull and six of his defenders and six Indian police were slain, with many wounded. The chief's young son, Crow Foot, and his adopted "brother" died with him.
