“Buffalo Creation“ (Chief Sitting Bull)

Artwork Description
Sitting Bull did not take part in Custer"s defeat at the Little Big Horn on the 25th of June, 1876, that fateful day he was in the hills praying to his Creator for help to defeat his enemy. Two days after the battle 4000 of the Sioux people escaped north to take refuge in Canada, near the Cypress Hills. The Buffalo emerging from all sides of the sculpture represent the provider of all things to maintain their Native way of life. Story tellers put it this way: "The buffalo came from the center of the earth through a hole the Creator opened to release them. Coyote, the Trickster, saw his chance to create some havoc. By drawing the Creator's attention away from the hole with a fake emergency he would forget to close it, allowing millions of buffalo to escape. To punish the people for not protecting their land from the distruction of the white intruder, the Creator sent the buffalo back down the hole to the center of the earth to where they came from."
