Help me out here, gents…

In 'Last Stand', Nathan Philbrick cites a Lakota indian saying that the Sioux were 'no different to the white man' in seizing the Black Hills territory from the Crow.

I cannot, for the life of me, recall the name of the Lakota who made the statement.

Anybody know?

Just had a quick look in my copy and it appears to be a quote of Black Hawk.
