A HARD WAY TO LIVEWith the ever-growing domination of the encroaching white man, the Plains Indians were fighting desperately to preserve their lands, their sacred traditions, their very existence as a people.
A STRUGGLE TO SURVIVESitting Bull wanted peace, but was driven by the white man’s treachery to lead his braves into a war that saw one of the U.S. Army’s worst defeats at Little Big Horn. Then the great chief was murdered, and an enigmatic new leader promised his people a return to the joys of the old buffalo days. But as a frenzy of ghost dances erupted, the Indian Bureau panicked and the stage was set for the final fight to keep the flickering spark of a proud heritage alive. And as they drew nearer to Wounded Knee Creek, the people of the Plains asked themselves each day if it was indeed…A GOOD DAY TO DIE.
