Krista Tippett's radio show, "Speaking of Faith" on NPR--National Public Radio--, this week---check your local listings:
"Tatanka Iyotake, Sitting Bull (December 17) (It plays here in Nebraska on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings...) 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."
She usually does a pretty good show, so it will be interesting to see what she does with this.
