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