English: Miniconjou chief Spotted Elk (aka. Bigfoot) lies dead in the snow after massacre at Wounded Knee. Dead Bigfoot Lakotas leader Spotted Elk, (called by soldiers Bigfoot), after the massacre of Wounded Knee (photo of January 1, 1891). Carl Smith described him as January 7, 1891 in the "Chicago Inter-Ocean ': Big Foot lay as if in dignified seclusion ... Clad in civilian clothes decent, his head wrapped in a shawl. He wore a woolen underwear and pointed to the overall look of someone fairly well cared. He had several gunshot wounds, and if he could realize what hurt him, the signs have quite disappeared. Itinerant photographer propped the old man, and when he lay helpless, his portrait done ... But he spared the usual treatment for a nice appearance.

Polski: Martwy wódz Lakotów Wielka Stopa (ang. Big Foot) po masakrze nad Wounded Knee (zdjęcie z 1 stycznia 1891). Carl Smith tak opisywał go 7 stycznia 1891 w "Chicago Inter-Ocean": Wielka Stopa spoczywał jakby w godnym odosobnieniu... Odziany w przyzwoite cywilne ubranie, głowę miał owiniętą szalem. Nosił wełnianą bieliznę a ogólny wygląd wskazywał na kogoś dość dobrze zadbanego. Miał kilka ran postrzałowych i jeśli zdążył zdać sobie sprawę z tego, co go raniło, to oznaki tego całkiem zniknęły. Wędrowny fotograf podparł starca, a gdy leżał bezbronny, zrobiono mu portret... Oszczędzono mu jednak zwyczajowych zabiegów o miły wygląd.
