Sitting Bull's band made their way to the Wood Mountain area of southern Saskatchewan, where they petitioned the Canadian government for a reserve. The Canadian government, concerned about the possibility of conflict with Canadian bands and unwilling to oppose the United States government, refused the request for land and food. Under threat of starvation, more and more of Sitting Bull's people drifted back across the border until finally, Sitting Bull himself returned to the United States to face trial.
