For us, warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another’s life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity. ~Sitting Bull (Ta-Tanka I-Yotank), Lakota Sioux Sitting Bull, Peace Pipes, American Indian, Lakota Sioux, Schools Photography, Sit Bull, Bull 18311890, American Schools, Native American

If the Great Spirit has desired me to be a white man he would have made me so in the first place. He put in your heart certain wishes and plans; in my heart he put other and different desires. Each man is good in the sight of the Great Spirit. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows. Now we are poor but we are free. No white man controls our footsteps. If we must die, we die defending our rights. --Sitting Bull - Teton Sioux

Then there was a short conflict, in which Sitting Bull and six of his defenders and six Indian police were slain, with many wounded.
