Land of the Sioux

Of all the North American mountain tribes, the Sioux have the fiercest resistance of the Americans. Along the banks of the Little Bighorn River, the US Army is being shamed.


Black Hills National Park in South Dakota captivates with the beauty of its nature. Local residents of these lands were expelled from here in 1874. The Sioux are the tribe with the richest traditions in the northern United States. There is reason to believe that the chiefs anticipate the approaching end of their people. In 1812. During the war between the British and the Americans, the members of the Sioux tribe came to the UK, which was later defeated. In the mid-19th century, it became clear that their biggest enemy was the newly formed alliance - the United States.


In 1837. the Indians are selling the entire territory of the east of the Mississippi to the United States in the hope that they will be able to continue to live peacefully on the other side of the river. But the reality is different. As early as 1845. a clash with the US Army at Fort Leremy in Wyoming leads to so-called the Red Clouds War between 1866-1868. It ends with the signing of a peace treaty under which the Indians give up their lands to the United States, with the exception of Black Hills, which was given to them forever. But when the white colonizers discovered gold in that territory, they decided to free themselves from the uncomfortable Indians. In the Black Hills, gold miners and miners arrive.
They kill the buffalo without which the life of the Suiks is impossible. When the portion of US troops is reduced, conflict becomes inevitable. The last victory of the Indians was June 25, 1876. The legendary Battle of Little Bighorn les General George A. Custer and 300 members of his cavalry. The Sikhs, led by Sitting Bull, pay for their victory with numerous casualties. Most of the brave wars die in battle. In the history of this people in 1890. is recorded under the sign of tragedy. Then the US Army does something terrifying - killing about 200 women, men and children by the Wideed River.     Native American heirs today live in reserves in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
