Tatanka-Iyotanka, better known as Sitting Bull, was a Lakota leader and military strategist.
Sitting Bull was born around 1831 in present-day South Dakota. When he was a boy, the Sioux "owned the world" and "the sun rose and set on their land". At some time he met a Cheyenne named Tahmelapachme.
He helped defeat Custer's army regiment in 1876 before moving with his people to safety in Saskatchewan. During his time touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Sitting Bull performed on the banks of Mill Creek near Elwood City in 1885.
123 years after his time in Elwood City, Arthur Read started a petition to make the site where he performed into an official historical landmark.
