Did Sitting Bull Jump the Border?

Now comes news that the bones of Sitting Bull his descendants want to move may actually be in Canada.

Jerome First, a 70-year-old Montana Sioux and the great-grandson of Sitting Bull's close friend, Chief Medicine Bear, claims the latest uproar over the bones is irrelevant because Sitting Bull was secretly buried in the Turtle Mountains of southern Manitoba.

The Turtle Mountains straddle the border between southwestern Manitoba and North Dakota.

"They faked his grave," First told CanWest News Service on Friday, "because Sitting Bull had visions that there would be a fight over his body." [Link]
