Big Foot
Ste Si Tanka



Portrait of Big Foot, Ogallala [Sioux]. "Father of Six Feathers and Plenty Bear," says Colhoff. "His right name is Ste Si Tanka," says He Dog.

Despite many publications where this man is identified as the Minicoujou Big Foot, also known as Spotted Elk (killed at Wounded Knee), this is the Oglala Big Foot.
