"The Grand River at Sitting Bull's Cabin" (Tataka Lyotake) with Ernie LaPointe, his Great Grandson. This is less than 200 yards from the site of where the great chief was murdered. Sitting Bull would have drawn water from here. He was killed on December 15th, 1890 and the importance and tragedy of this place is palpable.
