The Sitting Bull Memorial Snack Bar

Sitting Bull's descendants want his remains removed from South Dakota to the Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana because they object to the "improvements" planned for his burial place.

The catalyst for the great-grandchildren's decision apparently was a proposal by the nonprofit Sitting Bull Monument Foundation, which recently purchased the grave site from a private owner. According to its Web site, the foundation's plans include preservation and protection of the grave site and development of an educational and cultural center and museum. It would also include riverfront recreational development, an amphitheater, snack bar, restaurant and gift shop. [Link]

Kudos to Sitting Bull's grandchildren who want to keep his grave site commercialism free..

I wonder what will happen to the Sitting Bull Monument if they succeed. Is anyone going to want to visit the place where Sitting Bull used to be buried?

Is there a snack bar at George Washington's home in Mount Vernon?...I can't remember...it would probably do quite well because it was very hot and crowded the last time I was there.

According to the Mount Vernon website, "No food and beverage, except bottled water, is allowed on the estate," but they do have a food court.

When the family moved Sitting Bulls bones to where they currently are (sort of), "North Dakota officials later claimed that the Mobridge group got only a few bones and that they were not necessarily those of Sitting Bull."

Thats what happens when you go digging things up in the middle of the night.

Who knows, maybe the rest of his remains were stolen by the Bush family.
