Spotted Tail

by David Heska Wanbli Weiden

Meet Chief Spotted Tail, the great leader of the Sicangu Lakota people. Spotted Tail was born almost two hundred years ago, and he helped lead the Lakota nation during times of war. Chief Spotted Tail was not only a great warrior, but he was one of the first American Indian leaders to argue for peace between the United States and Native Americans. Today, there is a university named after him on the Rosebud Indian reservation, and his life is an inspiration to all Americans.

Named as one of the best books of 2019 by American Indians in Children's Literature, this biography of Spotted Tail traces the life of the famous Lakota leader who expertly guided his people through a pivotal and tumultuous time in their nation's history as they fought and then negotiated with the U.S. government. Spotted Tail is remembered for his unique leadership style and deep love for his people. Today, a university is named in his honor.
