      Sitting Bull & Buffalo Bill. In 1884, Sitting Bull was allowed to leave the reservation to join Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West show. Historians have reported that Sitting Bull gave speeches about his desire for education for the young, and reconciling relations between the Sioux and whites. He earned a small fortune by charging for his autograph and picture, although he often gave his money away to the homeless and beggars. #sittingbull #sioux

    The rough-riding talents of Lulu Parr were not first seen at Buffalo Bill’s Wild West. Her skill with the gun caught the attention of Pawnee Bill, who signed her to his show in 1903. She left that show but came back in 1911. By that time, Pawnee Bill had joined Buffalo Bill’s show. Buffalo Bill was so in awe of Lulu’s willingness to ride unbroken ponies that he presented her with an ivory-handled Colt single-action revolver, engraved with “Buffalo Bill Cody to Lulu Parr—1911.”

    Whilst touring with the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, Sitting Bull said to Annie Oakley, "I can't understand why the white man is so unmindful of their own poor. The white man knows how to make everything, but he does not know how to distribute it!" Sitting Bull gave most of his earnings to a band of ragged, hungry boys who surrounded him wherever he went.
