sitting bull

Journal by chicken

I dont know much about my family history, but what i do know i find very facinating. Since i was a little girl my dad always told me that i was an indian princess. I didnt actually believe him until i was about ten years old. then i found out that im not an indian princess, but my aunt is and that the famous indian sitting bull is in fact my great-great grandfather. so now i am just trying to learn more about sitting bull and my distant family that ive never met before.

I will keep looking for more information, however this is what I have so far.
He stood well among his own people, and was respected for his generosity, quiet disposition, and steadfast adherence to Indian ideals. He had two wives at the time of his death (one of whom was known as Pretty Plume), and was the father of 9 children. His eldest son was called Louis.
