As some Lakota make an annual pilgrimage on horseback to Wounded Knee in memory of Sitting Bull's death, we'll pull out some of the lesser known threads of the legacy of this complex leader and American icon. And we'll explore why his spiritual character has animated his own people in the last three decades more openly than at any time since his death in 1890.
Krista Tippett interviewed Ernie LaPointe, great-grandson of Sitting Bull, on October 20, 2009. This interview is included in the show "Tatanka Iyotake: Reimagining Sitting Bull."
