Native American Art and History

Sitting Bull, Hunkpapa-Lakota by James Ayers

"The white man's government promised that if we, the Shoshones, would be content with the little patch allowed us, it would keep us well supplied with everything necessary to comfortable living... But it has not kept its word! ... It does not protect our rights. It leaves us without the promised seed, without tools for cultivating the land, without implements for harvesting our crops ... I say again, the government does not keep its word!" -- Chief Washakie

Buffalo Calf Road Woman (1850s-1878), was a Northern Cheyenne woman who saved her wounded warrior brother Chief Comes in Sight, in the Battle of Rosebud (as it was called by the US) in 1876. She fought next to her husband in the Battle of the Little Bighorn that same year. In 2005 Northern Cheyenne storytellers broke more than 100 years of silence about the battle, and they credited her with striking the blow that knocked General George Armstrong Custer off his horse before he died.
