30 Years of WarHailey Kim

The Paiute Native American tribe started the Ghost Dance, which is a traditional dance during difficult times to have new hope for the future. The dance eventually spread to other Native American tribes. The US government, however, saw this dance as a threat and sent a couple of policeman in the Lakota tribes to stop this dance. During this confrontation, a well-respected leader, Sitting Bull, was killed.
