Whatever we did, wherever we went, we took our horses with us. When our Lakota Sioux grandfathers and grandmothers came to Canada in 1877, after the Battle of Little Bighorn, they brought hundreds of horses with them. They were a horse people.
Four years later, when most of the Lakota returned to the United States, about fifty families stayed in Canada. We were still a horse people.
