With Sitting Bull at the Spirit Lake Massacre
As helmed by Robert North Bradbury, the silent feature With Sitting Bull at the Spirit Lake Massacre was produced in 1925 but went unreleased until 1927, and was then considered lost for another 80 years. It stars a Native American thespian, Chief Yowlachie, as the famous 19th Century Sioux Indian Sitting Bull. The tale unfolds in the 1860s or 1870s, just outside of Spirit Lake, Iowa, where the burgeoning Caucasian populace continues to claim one Native American settlement after another, indiscriminately. They err (and in a big way) by laying hands on a settlement long promised to the Sioux, located at Spirit Lake proper; this, in turn, rouses the ire of Sitting Bull and prompts him to forcibly reclaim the territory. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
