This is the story of Frank Kaquitts-Sitting Wind--born a Cree and raised among the Stoney. He learned traditional Native ways from his grandmother and uncle, and went on to be the first and only chief of all three Stoney bands. Taught non-Native ways at residential school, he became a soldier, boxer and landscape painter. The fascinating but often challenging story of Sitting Wind includes his time as an actor, when he played Sitting Bull opposite Paul Newman in "Buffalo Bill and the Indians", or "Sitting Bull's History Lesson".
