Description: Chief Sitting Bull, leader of the Sioux. He was born on the Grand River a few miles west of Mobridge in March 1831. He was not a hereditary chief, but he acquired whatever power possessed through personal qualities which appealed to his people. Sitting Bull's tragic end came at the very place he was born. The great Sioux leader was shot by Indian police in 1890 while resisting arrest and his body was placed in a simple grave without ceremony in Ft. Yates, ND. Mobridge became nationally known when, on a dark and stormy April night in 1953, relatives of Sitting Bull snuck into ND, exhumed his bones and reburied them in a gravesite just west across the river from Mobridge.
