    SITTING BULL (TATONKA YOTANKA) CABINET CARD. 1870-1880 Sioux chief, 1837-1890. He was chief of the Dakota Sioux, who were driven from their reservation in the Black Hills by miners in 1876, and took up arms against the whites and friendly Indians, refusing to be transported to the Indian Territory. In June, 1876, they defeated and massacred Gen. George A. Custer's advance party of Gen. Alfred H. Terry's column, which was sent against them, on Little BigHorn River. They were pursued northward by General Terry.

    Sitting Bull, with a part of his band, made his escape into British Territory, and, through the mediation of Dominion officials, surrendered on a promise of pardon in 1880. In July and August, 1888, in a conference at Standing Rock, Dakota, he influenced his tribe to refuse to relinquish Indian lands.

    Caption in period ink on Photo card 'Sitting Bull and family". Great image of Sitting Bull with great bead work moccasins, peace pipe in hand & Concho belt on his leg. Has very bright contrast with very light foxing in upper background.
