Sitting Bull was born around 1830 as Jumping Badger to Jumping Bull and Her-Holy-Door in the Grand River region of what is now South Dakota. He did not earn the name Sitting Bull until he matured into adolescence, and because no one called him Jumping Badger, he arned the nickname Hunkesni, or Slow, due to his deliberate pace and his introverted attitude. While he was a young child, Slow learned to hunt small game with a bow. As Sitting Bull grew older, he was more adamant about proving himself to his elders, killing his first buffalo at the age of ten, and by the time he was fourteen, he had accompanied a group of Lakota warriors on a raid of their rivals, the Crow. He also fought in the Dakota War of 1862, also known as the Sioux uprising.
With the whites moving in on the Black Hills in search for gold, they wanted to buy it from the Lakota people. Crazy Horse moved and set up camp around the area and led raids on the miners.

Crazy Horse and the people who had followed him believed that they had to drive out the whites, and that the buffalo would return.

The problem, of course, is that the show did more than entertain—it also became a sort of travelling museum and the definitive word on a vital period of America’s past. What lessons, exactly, did the show teach and whose values did the Buffalo Bill show endorse? The program of the show, a website notes, “presented itself as a source of knowledge, authority, and authenticity about the west.” (http://xroads.virginia.edu) This mixing of fantasy with reality, of myth and history, belied the official sounding nature of the show and its program, not to mention the visual nature of the presentation, which must have seemed real. The blending of fact and fiction, not surprisingly, carried over to Cody himself, as many became confused with him and the character of Buffalo Bill. More important to history, though, the stereotype of the American Indian was reinforced, night after night, as Buffalo Bill and his cast of nearly 500 actors played out scene after scene where the Indian was nothing more than a mounted warrior destined to lose to the American individual, taming the frontier, as it were,

After Black Elk got the gifts he was taught the horse dance, when Black Elk returned from his vision he went to see his cousin Crazy horse, later on Crazy Horse would be murdered by being stabbed in the back by a soldier. By this time most of the indians were forced to live on the reservations but one band of Lakotas escaped from the reservation and traveled north to Canada where Sitting Bull’s band was. The winters in Canada were too harsh for the Sioux so they reluctantly moved back to the reservation where they were given hardly anything. With Black Elk’s people losing hope he teaches them the dances he learned in his visions. When Black Elk learns of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show he decides to go with him, after a few months doing shows in America Black Elk went to England. When the Lakotas were camped on Wounded Knee Creek, the wasichus came and murdered everyone in the camp including the women and children. After the battle the remaining Lakota surrendered they went to the reservation and the flowering tree dies. The
