Ghost Dance, 1890-91
He was active in the Ghost Dance religious movement of 1890, and had traveled with fellow Lakota Kicking Bear to Nevada to visit the movement's leader, Wovoka. The two were instrumental in bringing the movement to the Lakota living on reservations in South Dakota. Following the fatal shooting of Sitting Bull, Short Bull was imprisoned at Fort Sheridan, Illinois.
On his release in 1891, Short Bull joined Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, and made several trips to Europe with the show. Short Bull died on July 6, 1923 on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota.
