Photograph: Orlando Scott Goff, “Sitting Bull,” 1881 “When the Lakota leader Sitting Bull was asked by a white reporter why his people loved and respected him, Sitting Bull replied by asking if it was not true that among white people a man is respected because he has many horses, many houses? When the reporter replied that was indeed true, Sitting Bull then said that his people respected him because he kept nothing for himself.”

Chief Flying Horse, the older brother of the minor Sitting Bull charged into Captain Henry Jackson's men, knowing full well he would be killed but his actions permitted enough time for women and children to get further away.

John (Fire) Lame Deer “Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
