The Battle of Little Big Horn June 25 1876: The Prelude to Disaster for the U.S. Army The Sioux and Cheyenne Indians defiantly left their reservations, outraged over the continued intrusions of whites into their sacred lands in the Black Hills.

OST Pine Ridge History Oglala Sioux Community Profile Bands: Each of the seven Lakota tribes were subdivided into bands (tiyospaye), which consisted of a number of smaller family camps (tiwahe). During parts of the year, the small camps were scattered across the region; at other times, these camps gathered together as a tiyospaye to cooperate on activities such as a large buffalo hunt. Each summer, usually in early June, bands from many groups gathered together for the annual sacred sundance.
