This collection contains an autograph and drawing of a bull made by Sitting Bull on June 16, 1881, and a collection of seven
typed manuscripts of articles about Sitting Bull and the Oglala Sioux, as well as a hand-written copy of correspondence between
the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and the United States Indian Agent at Standing Rock Agency between June 3, 1891 and June
14, 1894.The typed manuscripts appear to be newspaper articles, and all are undated.
Sitting Bull (Lakota; c. 1831 – December 15, 1890) was a Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux holy man who led his people as a tribal chief
during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock
Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement.
