Short Bull
“Tatanka Ptecela”, Brute Sioux Medicine Man (1845-1915)

Short Bull, along with Kicking Bear was the principal leader of the Ghost Dance religion among the Sioux at the Pine Ridge and Standing Rock Agencies. The white man misinterpreted the pacifism of the new faith and the result was the death of Sitting Bull and the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee (Dec. 29, 1890).
