Hi Ladonna, Having looked at your detailed research on the Sitting Bull family you may be interested to know that in the reserve collections of the Bristh Museum there are a beautiful pair of moccasins labelled as being made by the daughter of Sitting Bull and Mountain Goat . The daughters name given is Sleeping Water [the spelling is shown incorrectly as Minnerstema but should be Mini Istinma without the diacritics ]. Dated 1880 and collected by a Canadian family connected to Wood Mountain.
This is an interesting entry in the museum records. Experience shows one must be careful with labels as they can be wrong. However the label is old and came with the moccasins when bought at auction by the BM in 1996 from Phillips Auctioneers in London. They could be artifakes but I doubt this.
Is it possible that there was another Sitting Bull amongst the Canadian Lakota at this time or rather a case of name changes to the wife and daughter of the Hunkpapa leader whilst north of the boundary line ?
If you go to the British Museum website and click on viewing the collections enter in moccasins sleeping water and hopefully you will be able to view.
The name would be the first have names like thing i would notice we dont have names like montana goat or sleeping water here. I would have to look at the design and color for each nation has its own color and design. So many people have identied articles as Sitting Bull but they are not.
Thanks for coming back. From my inspection the bead work and importantly the style and cut of the moccasins suggest Lakota to me. I believe you have mis read the name. It is Mountain Goat - He ki nskayapi.
Sleeping Water does seem slightly unusual but maybe possible.
Presumably Major Walsh had a roster/census of the Canadian Sioux. Probably best that I have a search there for any reference to these names.
I wonder if E. Dickson can shed any light from his recent book on the Lakota returning from Canada with Sitting Bull ?

Sitting Bulls Family? Skimming the pages of this really good homepage, and catching the Q. from "Gregor" in the Spotted Eagle thread, I find a couple of places, where fellow "colleges" (and I) has doubts about, who is who, in the family tree of SB. In my opinion the problem comes in two terms - the adopted children of Seen By Her Nation, and the twins of 1876. When Seen.. married SB around 1872 she brought two sons into the marriage - Little Soldier and Blue Mountain. Both of these boys are born between 1863 and 1869, according to my notes. Little Soldier is traceable from birth till death - but Blue Mountain is not - so who was he? Then the twins of 1876 appears, where William should be one, and ? should be the other (who was he?). The story goes that they were born during the LBH-fight, but..? Regardless of the fact, that I have not yet seen, in any literature, twins so early, not even in the latest lists, these twins is mentioned in several places without identification. Comments, anyone? Regards wilson
William Sitting Bull Louis Sitting Bull are the sons of Bear Louse who was Seen By her Nation first husband. Sitting Bull adopted and raised them. Little Soldier was adopted by Sitting Bull and raised by him. Blue Mountain died young but unknow if he was Bear Louse son
Sitting Bull had a few sets of twins we recorded all that we have records of from family and documentation.
There´s a new interesting video of Ernie LaPointe, where he recalls how his Grand Uncle, John Sitting Bull aka "Grandpa Who Doesn´t Speak", helped keep the ceremonies of the Lakota alive when Ernie was a boy.
If you like to back Ernie LaPointe´s new video project, you can also pledge a few dollars at this Kickstarter site.
After the battle at Little Big Horn, Sitting Bull was often titled as a coward by reporters, army officers and politicans. For an example, in 1910, Sitting Bull was termed a s a coward by General Charles P. King. Here an excerpt of General King 's speech :
„ When the soldiers were sighted, the ponies were brought in, and the women, children and old men were sent to the rear... One of the first to scurry away in the dust of retreat was Sitting Bull. And he did not return until the young braves followed after, shouting for the party to come back, as the soldiers had been wiped out....“
General King`s speech was wrong and – ridiculous
For interest, there's a statement, spoken by Wooden Leg ( Northern Cheyenne ) about 1930 :
„ Every time I have been where white people have been asking questions about the Custer battle, somebody has wanted to know : „Where was Sitting Bull during the fight ? „ For a lomng time I did not understand why this question was pressed so strongly. Then I learned that white people had been saying : „Sitting Bull was a coward. He was not whit the warriors in the fighting“ . I do not know where he was. I had no thought about trying to find out. I suppose he was helping the women and children and old people, where he belonged. He had a son in the fight. Any man having a son serving as a warrior was expected to stay out of battles and give the son his chance to get warrior honors. Lame White Man, the Southern Cheyenne tribal chief who was killed, went into the fight because of his having no son there.... My father stayed in the camps, but his staying there was not on account of personal fear. I am not ashamed to tell that I was a follower of Sitting Bull. I have no ears for hearing anybody say he was not a brave man. He had a big brain and a good one, a strong heart and a generous one. In the old times I never heard of any Indian having spoken otherwise of him. If any of them changed their talk in later days, the change must have been brought about by lies of agents and soldier chiefs who schemed to make themselves appear as good men by making him appear as a bad man... „
Wooden Leg with his supposition was nearly right. Where was Sitting Bull during the battle ?
At the beginning of the battle, Sitting Bull began preparing himself to join the battle. He was readying his favorite horse when his aged mother stopped him. She pointed out that he did not have to fight because he did not have anything more to prove to the people. She reminded him that he had two wives and small children to take care of. Since he was now a mature man of forty – five years, he could let the younger warriors prove their worth by protecting the camp and defending the people. Sitting Bull accepted his mothers wisdom and bowed to her wishes by not participating the battle. Instead, he guided the vulnerable noncombatants to a safe place.
Sitting Bull acted in accordance with his culture, there was no personal fear in his heart.

Great work LaDonna ! This is the most extensive Lakokta genealogical tree I have ever seen. It is almost impolite to ask about further details.
But who of Sitting Bull's wives was a sister to Iron Cedar Woman ?
Iron Cedar Woman was married to Black Fox (aka. Cut Forehead) (Oyuhpe Oglala). Together they had 5 children, among them was Flying Hawk (b.1852) and Kicking Bear (b.1848). And according to Flying Hawk: "His mother and Sitting Bull's wife were sisters"
The most likely one of Sitting Bull's wives is Light Hair.
Cinemo ... thanks for the article just above. It is hard to believe that anybody could criticize Sitting Bull's character, especially his bravery. Anyone making such comments is more likely making a negative statement about their own character!
Ladonna ... tremendous genealogy. Very impressive. It must have taken tons of work. Great job!!!
i never heard that any of Sitting Bull early wives were a sister to Iron Cedar Woman, but i did hear the Grey Eagle's sisters the Last two wives,had a sister in Pine Ridge that is why they went to Pine Ridge after their husband was killed.

Excellent. To be honest I was kind of worried that since a member of the One Bull family is tribal chairman and most likely has a say in who works that it might color your answers. I'm happy to hear you're not beholding to him...not that he's bad or anything...it just nice to get it out on the table. You should know I don't represent Ernie or his sisters but have a genuine thirst for the truth...which means I have a tendency to ask more questions than most normal people...which others may find irritating at times...including my friends. However it is who I am for better or worse.
So let's get started. You offered that only Sitting Bull's wives and children left. Ernie in his oral history claims it was more than that. Right now, for the sake of argument let's say it was somewhere in between. One might pin it down later by getting hold of the Pine Ridge enrollment records. Unless you have a copy it might be something I could to order. Secondly you indicated that McLaughlin gave Sitting Bull's wives and children the right to leave. In all the National Archive materials that I read I didn't find that at all. Ernie says they arrived at Pine Ridge during the summer of 1891 but were not enrolled until 1894. If McLaughlin 'gave' them the right to leave did he notify Pine Ridge or Agent McGillycuddy? For that point, since it is McLaughlin, I think there would be a strong chance that he would have written something about that down. And if he did know they were going to Pine Ridge I would think as a responsible agent he would have notified McGillycuddy...unless there was something more devious going on. It seems to me sending two women and their children out on their own outside his jurisdiction when prior to that they were taken to Fort Yates as a 'we'll keep you safe here' move by McLaughlin seems to go against the grain. You should know in Ernie's oral history he says they went to the stronghold because they feared McLaughlin would send the police after them again so they wanted to be in an area where they could run off and hide in the badlands if they got word of any impending move against them. He also says that it wasn't their idea to go to Fort Yates but that it was an attempt by McLaughlin to keep an eye on them. What say you on this part?
Hi I guess for me I am unconcern with the "he said she said thing". I really not in allied with either side at this point or ever, I dont think i favor one side over the other, I have met Ernie about three times and of course Ron was the ex-chairman which was 5 years ago here when i worked in historic preservation but that does mean that i would pick one side over the other. I do love history. My office is being called all the time over Sitting Bull which caused me to start research the family like you i have a great interest in our people. The Two Grey Eagle sisters (Sitting Bull's last two wives)show up in the Pine Ridge census in 1893 as Oglalas so i was wonder because i was told that Grey Eagle's had relatives in Pine Ridge and were Oglalas. So I wonder if they had a sister that married there or as I was told that the sister went down to stay with their relatives. Plus is was not just a the two women and their children that left was it not the Jumping Bull's and other with the group that left? I have them in the Pine Ridge Census in 1893
