They Never Surrendered. The Lakota Sioux Band That Stayed in Canada.
by Ronald J. Papandrea, Lightnight Source, La Vergne TN 2009, partially paginated to 50 pages with a large, non paginated section listing source and reference material.
Ron Papandrea's research on the Lakota who won the battle of the Little Big Horn and escaped the army by crossing the border into Canada is a valuable resource. It includes maps and photographs. After the defeat of Custer at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in June 1876, thousands of Lakota Sioux went to Canada to escape the American army. Their leaders included Sitting Bull, Four Horns and the two famous Lakota Sioux chiefs with the name "Black Moon". Most returned to American reservations within 5 years; but 250 stayed in Canada where their descendants live today [review by GoodReads]
