The last surviving great-grandson of legendary Lakota leader Sitting Bull will make another visit to Niles.
The Fort St. Joseph Museum will host Ernie LaPointe Saturday, April 9. He will be available to sign copies of his book “Sitting Bull: His Life and Legacy” and his DVDs about the story of Sitting Bull. The book and DVDs will be available for purchase for $20 each at the museum.
Sitting Bull, a Lakota chief and holy man, is famous for his involvement at the Battle of Little Big Horn.
LaPointe’s book is unique in that it tells Sitting Bull’s story from the Native American perspective. It’s the only biography of Sitting Bull written by a lineal descendent.
