About the Book
INKPADUTA – Sitting Bull’s Predecessor
Read about the most controversial Sioux Indian who was the first to kill white western frontier settlers five years before the Sioux slaughtered 400 settlers during the Civil War and who, in five battles in North Dakota frustrated Generals Sibley and Sully sent to punish the Sioux with the largest army ever sent by the U.S. against Indians.
Of all the “Fighting Sioux” for whom the North Dakota football team is named, none fought harder nor was hated more by whites than Inkpaduta, who also helped defeat Custer at the Little Bighorn and was never captured.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 453-459) and index.
Maps of battles of the Dakota Territory Indian wars on end papers.
