Sarah Sadlier enrolled in Professor Scott Sagan’s Sophomore College seminar on the Battle of the Little Bighorn, in part because one of her ancestors, “Big Leggins” Bruguier, was an interpreter for Sitting Bull and present in the Little Bighorn camp the day the fighting began. The experience proved so profound that she soon signed up to conduct research for the Cantor exhibition Red Horse: Drawings of the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
She also initiated the Stanford course “The Art and Artifacts of the Battle of the Little Bighorn,” which she and Isabella Shey Robbins led in the fall. The course culminated in this student-curated art exhibition, an exploration of contemporary indigenous perspectives on the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
