Summary
Even before the Indian Wars had ended, Cody was bringing the vanishing frontier to citizens across the land in one of America's earliest reality shows. It was so popular that it lasted for thirty years. For four months in 1885, the Lakota chief Sitting Bull appeared in Cody's Wild West show. The appearance spawned one of the earliest advertising slogans: "Foes in '76, Friends in '85"--Referring to the Little Big Horn. Sitting Bull did not participate in Custer's "last stand" but was nearby and popularly blamed for it. With their way of life in tatters, many Lakota and others availed themselves of the chance to perform in the Wild West show. Cody paid his performers well, and he treated the Indians no differently from white performers. As the show traversed America, Sitting Bull and Cody formed an unlikely partnership, united in mutual respect and by their shared history with the animal that gave both of them their names
