What's that got to do with anything?
The Lakota wiped out other tribes on a routine basis, as did the Sioux.
The dog-eat-dog world is a sad thing, true. But, the victor gets to write history and it's the loser that has to live with it. Now, "some" of the Sioux get to be the victor here, and wipe out years of tradition just as one Egyptian King would wipe out the images of past Kings.
