Tatanka Iyotanka, más conocido como Toro Sentado , fue un jefe nativo norteamericano de la tribu de los sioux.

Era considerado un líder espiritual de los lakota, y también fue elegido como jefe supremo de toda la nación sioux, cuando se incrementaba el acoso del ejército estadounidense sobre sus tierras ancestrales. Sin embargo, la rendición de los nativos era inevitable, por lo que decidió refugiarse en Canadá en 1877, aunque regresó a los Estados Unidos cuatro años después para entregarse a las autoridades gubernamentales.

Pasó los últimos años de su vida en la reserva de Standing Rock, y formó parte del espectáculo de Buffalo Bill. Fue asesinado mientras un grupo de policías lakota le detenían, ya que se le acusaba de instigar una nueva rebelión de los nativos.

Published in Utley, Robert M. The Lance and the Shield. New York: Henry Holt and Co., 1993. p. 79-80.
