From 1866 to 1868, Red Cloud as a leader of the Oglala Lakota fought against U.S. forces, attacking their forts in an effort to keep control of the Powder River Country of Montana. In support of him, Sitting Bull led numerous war parties against Fort Berthold, Fort Stevenson, and Fort Buford and their environs from 1865 through 1868.

The uprising has come to be known as Red Cloud’s War.

By early 1868, the U.S. government desired a peaceful settlement to the conflict. It agreed to Red Cloud’s demands that the U.S. abandon forts Phil Kearny and C.F. Smith. Gall of the Hunkpapa (among other representatives of the Hunkpapa, Blackfeet, and Yankton Dakota) signed a form of the Treaty of Fort Laramie on July 2, 1868, at Fort Rice (near Bismarck, North Dakota). Sitting Bull did not agree to the treaty.

He told the Jesuit missionary, Pierre Jean De Smet, who sought him out on behalf of the government: “I wish all to know that I do not propose to sell any part of my country.”

He continued his hit-and-run attacks on forts in the upper Missouri area throughout the late 1860s and early 1870s.
