The six Lakota bands (Ogalalas, Brules, Sans Arcs, Black Kettles, Hunkpapas, and Minneconjous)  who camped together, scattered after the bison hunt. Some Oglalas went to Fort Robinson (Soldiers'  Town); others stayed behind with Crazy Horse, who wanted nothing to do with white men. Black Elk  joined his relatives near Soldiers' Town, where he saw his first white man, and camped there all  winter. He tells about playing with the other children on sleds made of bison jaws and ribs. At one  point during their stay, soldiers threatened to punish the Indians because an Indian boy  mischievously cut off the top of a flagpole at the fort, but Red Cloud intervened and made peace.  Red Cloud was a great chief, but he quit fighting after the treaty of 1868, which was five years  before.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
