#58780: Sitting Bull Monument

The Standing Rock Native American Scenic Byway takes you past two places where one of the greatest leaders in American history is said to be buried. Sitting Bull died along the Grand River in western Standing Rock December 15, 1890 and was subsequently buried at Fort Yates, North Dakota. This site is marked and located on the drive into Fort Yates, within one mile of the Standing Rock Native American Scenic Byway. Later, Sitting Bull's remains were said to have been removed to a site across from Mobridge, South Dakota marked by a stone monument carved by famed sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski, located south of Grand River Casino, three miles off the byway.
