About the Show

This award-winning documentary makes extensive use of Sitting Bull's own words (as portrayed by Adam Fortunate Eagle), giving the viewer an intimate portrait of one of America's most legendary, yet least known, figures in all his complexities as a leader of the Sioux Nation. The movie presents the story of a warrior, spiritual leader, and skilled diplomat.

Augmented by the narrative's historic perspective, over 600 images, and a compelling original score, the film brings to life the little-know side of Sitting Bull, as well as the story of a great man's struggle to maintain his people's way of life against an ever-expanding westward movement of white settlers.
