Lakota Wisdom & Westward Expansion

“BALLAD OF SITTING BULL” tells the story of the Lakota people–a strong, proud Native American nation–and the great Chief who would lead them in a fierce fight to save their beloved way of life. Set on the Great Plains in the second half of the 19th Century, amid Manifest Destiny and the flood of settlers West, this story celebrates the Old Ways and the Four Lakota Virtues—courage, fortitude, generosity, and wisdom—as exemplified so vividly by the “bravest of the brave,” “Chief of all Chiefs,” legendary Sitting Bull.
