This would be the 75th anniversary of the rodeo first started in 1945 and takes the name of the historical figure of Sitting Bull, a Lakota leader killed while authorities attempted to arrest him in 1890.  He is buried near Mobridge, where he was born at the time known as Grand River Dakota Territory.
