New to this, non-Native, maybe. I’m one of “those people” with reported but unverified Native ancestry; that’s why I’m a family historian.
Anyway, just watched the DVD of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee last night. Scene 3 in the menu – Cedar Creek, Sitting Bull, Gall and others are overlooking the arrival of Col. Miles and troups. Sitting Bull says, “Bare colt”, doesn’t he? Is that what I heard? Repeated minutes later by Sitting Bull’s son and that he was a friend of Custer. Was that the name they gave Miles? I have a personal reason for wanting to know if that’s what they said in that scene.
