Famoso capo indiano americano , è ricordato nella storia statunitense e dei nativi per aver mobilitato più di 3.500 guerrieri Sioux e Cheyenne nella famosa Battaglia di Little Big Horn, dove ottenne una schiacciante vittoria sul colonnello George Armstrong Custer del Settimo cavalleggeri, il 25 giugno 1876.

„I hardly sustain myself beneath the weight of white men's blood that I have shed.“

— Sitting Bull
Context: I hardly sustain myself beneath the weight of white men's blood that I have shed. The whites provoked the war; their injustices, their indignities to our families, the cruel, unheard of and wholly unprovoked massacre at Fort Lyon … shook all the veins which bind and support me. I rose, tomahawk in hand, and I have done all the hurt to the whites that I could. Recorded by the Jesuit priest Pierre-Jean De Smet after a council with Sitting Bull on June 19, 1868. Published in Utley, Robert M. The Lance and the Shield. New York: Henry Holt and Co., 1993. p. 79-80.
