        Sitting Bull | Spiritual Leader and Military Leader Video

        Over the course of the 19th Century, white settlers moved westward, and the US Government brokered treaties with Native Americans and often resorted to using military force to claim land for the United States.

Through two primary source activities and a short biographical video, students will understand the remarkable courage of this leader who stood up for his people.
