Kasey Lynn Hutson American Civilization 1:00 Dr. Chris Mortenson Total words: 841 Sitting Bull and the Paradox of Lakota Nationhood Sitting Bull and the Paradox of the Lakota Nationhood by Gary C. Anderson gives an insight into the life of the Indian’s in the 1800’s during a strenuous battle against the Americans who so greatly wanted to change and relocate them to “perfect” this land that was still somewhat new to them. Though before diving into this book, one might think that it is all about Sitting Bull’s life and the theme is centered completely on this man. Once the reader dives in deeper to the story, it becomes evident that the book portrays a greater thesis and importance. Sitting Bull was a Lakota Indian who was put into a leadership position at a young age. The white settlers of the time were not accepting of the Indians and their lifestyles. The differences in the whites and the Lakota people turns into battles and tribulations in the late 1800’s, which meant the minority needed to stand together to prevail. This is where the true paradox of the story reveals itself to the reader.
