Description


Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux holy man (circa 1831-1890) known for his steadfast opposition to the intrusion of the US government into Sioux lands. Fleeing to Canada following the Battle of Little Big Horn, he later returned to the US and toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Fearing his growing influence, government agents fatally shot him during an arrest attempt at Standing Rock Agency on December 15, 1890. Very rare and highly sought-after pencil signature, "Sitting Bull,” on an off-white 5.75 x 2.75 slip, with a contemporary collector's notation below, "His own autograph." The reverse bears a handwritten witness statement: "A genuine autograph of Sitting Bull, noted Sioux chief, written in my presence, June 10th 1884, H. G. Williams." In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
