Biography William Sitting Bull
The great, great grandson of Chief Sitting Bull, who led the defeat of General George Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn on June 25, 1876, William Sitting Bull is an artist whose work reflects his Ogalala Sioux heritage. He says: "The spiritual legacy of being a direct descendant of Sitting Bull has inspired me to paint my people of the past and present. Not as fairy-tale images, but what's going on in their eyes, pores of skin, all over. Paintings that make my people want to talk to me." (75)
Acrylic is the medium he prefers for his paintings of Indian figures in ritual regalia, animals in landscape and solitary figures such as a General Custer before the battle with a backdrop of symbolism.
