July 21, 2021
ROSEBUD INDIAN RESERVATION — Dora Her Pipe (Brave Bull) just wanted to go home.
After being ripped from her family in South Dakota at 16 and shipped 1,500 miles to the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in 1879, she asked to be sent home in January 1881 because of illness.
Just three months later, she was dead. It would take another 140 years before she returned to her family and her homelands, wrapped in a buffalo robe in a cedar box.
