Chief Sitting Bull's name origin...

Item # 586347

March 16, 1881

THE PITTSFIELD SUN, Massachusetts, March 16, 1881

* Chief Sitting Bull name origin ?
* Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux Indians

This 8 page newspaper has a interesting report at the  bottom of page 6 headed: "Sitting Bull's Name" which gives a brief explanation from the "Western correspondent" on the origin of the famous Indian Chief's name. I took a quick look online and can't find any factual explanation of why he was called "Sitting Bull", making this item a nice curiosity.

Other news including advertisements of the day. Even light browning, minor margin wear but otherwise in good. Should be handled with care.
