The Sioux in the movie react to the arrival of the white man as if he was from another planet. In reality the Dakota Sioux had fought whites in Western Minnesota during 1862. 800 hundred whites were killed and 38 Sioux were hanged after hostilities ceased. There is no way that this news would not have reached the Lakota Sioux tribes directly to the west.
