In the early 19th century, a Russian zoologist found a Yeti's hair in the Caucasus Mountains.

【The Little Story】
A movie told the true story of the Native American tribe. The whole event was how three chiefs and a hero lead the Native American tribes to resist the encroachment from colonizers.
Crazy Horse was a man who was the hero of Sioux. The other three chiefs were Red Cloud and Sitting Bull of Sioux and Chief Joseph of Nez Perce.
It was profitable in the Black Hills, where had gold in the eyes of these invasive colonizers; moreover, there needed to be destroyed and be mined.
They took advantage of a young doctor of Sioux at first to have an inequality negotiation with the whole tribe. Finally, they killed Sioux's people by gunnery and forced them to accept the inequality terms.
They only can find comfort in singing songs and dancing left by their ancestors while they felt powerless during the persecution. They called the spirit of their ancestors and prayed for the blessing of their ancestors. (A kind of ceremony in Shamanism.)
The hundreds of Sioux people were massacred by the army in the coldest December, and their bodies were frozen and twisted in the wasteland with heavy snow.
The Black Hills meant a holy place, divinity, priceless, no destroy and no intrusion for Sioux of the Native American.
At the end of the story was the government had to spend a sum of money (about 700 million US dollars) due to these inequality terms that they thought these backlashes could be repressed.
However, until now there is not anyone of Sioux to take this money.
These are all connected with the totems and beliefs in the world.
