The winter of 1868-69 was one of the harshest on record in the northern plains. Starving, freezing, and fighting for its life, the Lakota warriors encountered it. In early December 1868, a small village of the Oglala Lakota Sacred Arrows tribe living along the Little White River was attacked. by a large force of soldiers from Fort Rice, Minnesota. The attack came as a surprise to the Lakota people, who knew that many settlers had encroached on Lakota land in recent years but felt that they had enough space to continue hunting and farming in peace. . The small community quickly found itself surrounded by soldiers who began shooting arrows from their rifles while also hurling explosives at the village with grenades. The Lakota warriors tried in vain to protect their outnumbered village. As dusk fell, most of them withdrew orderly out of town with heavy casualties among them. Those trying to escape were wounded or dead along the riverbanks, where they lay helpless in sub-zero temperatures waiting for death to find them before daylight returned. One such warrior is the Miniconjou Ghost Dog - known simply as Dog - who returned to camp alone after losing several friends in a battle in which he was wounded.
Today, we live in a world that values things based on their appearances, such as money, power, and possessions. But these are not the real meaning of life. The true meaning of life is to strive for one's best interests and to recognize all other people and creatures as members of the family. In December 1877, Lakota tribesmen from the Rosebud agency in the Black Hills called Red Cloud were hunting buffalo when they encountered a blizzard and heavy snowfall. No matter how hard they tried to dig up the bodies of their slain companions, the red snow piled up around them making it impossible for them to escape death. When one of them saw his wife through a hole in the snow wall, he raised his gun to shoot her as well as his friends outside to keep them from seeing his woman dead. before. However, an injured victim who had lost most of his friends told him: “That's not your wife; she died a long time ago. Take care of your children before taking care of the elderly! In order to survive the bitter cold winds that blew straight at them, the Lakota men fought among themselves like dogs instead of coming together and helping each other care for their wounded comrades so as not to die. burden others more than themselves.
In the winter of 1877, a group of Lakota warriors camped along the Little Bighorn River in Montana for the summer. They had left their home in western South Dakota in search of food but had not had much luck. The Lakota starved to death and ran out of ammunition. They knew they needed to find other tribes and convince them to join their cause before they starved to death. They spotted a column of soldiers approaching in the blizzard. Lakota quickly decided; They will sneak up on them from behind and kill as many soldiers as they can before they can raise the alarm. One warrior immediately began climbing a tree while another hid behind a rock wall until he was ready to attack. Before long, both warriors were hidden in the branches above the unsuspecting soldiers. But when it was time to strike, one fighter slipped and fell from the porch into the snow below - breaking his leg where he landed on impact and knocking him unconscious.
War is inherently a violent experience and so is the Lakota tribe. When the Lakotas were attacked by their enemies, the Army, and a group of white settlers known as the 'Farm Builders', they fought back to defend their land, their families, and their way of life. their life. As a result of this conflict, tens of thousands of people were killed; including more than 3,000 warriors who were killed in battle or who died of their wounds after being captured.
