The chiefs proud stance and defiance in the face of overwhelming opposition stirs the conscience as do the words of the great Chief Sitting Bull ….. ‘when I was a boy the Lakota’s owned the world; the sun rose and set on their land ….. where are the warriors today ? who slew them ? where are our lands ? who owns them ? ….. what law have I broken ? Is it wrong for me to love my own ? Is it wicked for me because my skin is red ? because I am Lakota: because I was born where my father lived; because I would die for my people and my country ?’ …..
(The Red Record of the Sioux, The Life of Sitting Bull. W Fletcher Johnson.; Egewood Pub. Co 1891)
