Delegation in Washington, D.C •

This impressive group of Sioux and Arapaho chiefs includes Spotted Tail, Worshinun, Black Coal, and Touch the Sky. The two white men? They acted as interpreters. The 1877 delegation to Washington, D.C., came the year after the Battle of Little Big Horn. The group was asking the U.S. government to deal fairly with them as they were forced into reserves.
