  • "Sitting Bull: His Life and Legacy"

    For those who may be interested, Ernie Lapointe┬┤s new book about his great-grandfather Sitting Bull will be released in August 2009. It will be published by Gibbs Smith, but you can also pre-order it at Amazon for a reasonable price.

    About the book:

    "Ernie LaPointe is the great-grandson of the famous Hunkpapa Lakota chief, and he presents the family tales and memories told to him about his great-grandfather. In many ways the oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Sitting Bull. LaPointe explains the discrepancies, how they occurred, and why he wants to tell his story of Tatanka Iyotake. Ernie LaPointe, a great-grandson of Sitting Bull, was born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He is a Sundancer and lives the traditional way of the Lakota and follows the rules of the sacred pipe. He lives in South Dakota. The only book on Sitting Bull written by a lineal descendant."
