Casualties of War
AIRED:
When gold is discovered in the Black Hills, the Lakota's most sacred land is threatened. The government wants mining rights, but Chief Sitting Bull refuses. He later has an ominous dream that gives hope to the Lakota. This vision becomes reality when the ambitious General Custer and the 7th Calvary are outnumbered by Crazy Horse and his warriors at Little Big Horn. But the Lakota victory fuels hatred of the Indians among those who seek to destroy them and their culture.moreless

  • Clara has a kid,

    I thought that this episode was one of the best. The way the writer intertwined all the lives in this episode was amazing to me. I love the historicalness of the series. Even though this episode did not have as much war or action as some of the other episodes, it was even better than a few because it lead into the next episode ,Ghost Dance, so nicely. For example, the way that we learned that Clara and Robert are going to have a child in this episode we can expect that they are going to be in the next episode also. Jacob and Thunder Heart Woman are going to be in the next episode to tell stories to Clara's kid. I thought that this episode was one of the best.
