Spotted Eagle, Sitting Bull's head chief during the late Indian war.

On the reservation a couple of Indian Police went to arrest Sitting Bull at his house. When Sitting Bull came outside his followers who had gathered outside tried to stop the arrest. One follower shot a policeman who in turn swung around and shot Sitting Bull to stop him from escaping. What a tragedy. Sitting Bull was 56 yrs old.

We doubted it because we had seen neither him nor his works. Red Cloud talking about Wovoka. Source: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

Amos Two Bulls, a Sioux Brave. The picture was taken in 1900. By this time, the traditional Indian lifestyle had pretty much come to an end. Most were living on reservations at this point. Amos Two Bulls was a member of the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show.

Many Native Americans welcomed African Americans into their villages. Even as slaves many African Americans became part of a family group, and many intermarried with Native Americans - thus many later became classified as Black Indians
