Episode Description

The mighty Sioux Nation roamed the Great Plains led by their spiritual leader, Sitting Bull. A powerful medicine man who guided his people to numerous victories over the U.S. Cavalry, he foresaw the Battle of Little Big Horn. A year before the massacre, he urged his followers to change their way of fighting. The new tactics brought them victory over Custer. We examine the visionary leadership of the great battle-tested chief in his bloody struggle for survival against white man's encroachment.
