Up in the frozen wastes of Ellesmere, Baffin and other nameless islands beyond Hudson Bay, the wily majesty of Sitting Bull's plan becomes evident: found disposable cities to lose and thereby make wars go away! (it's particularly funny that the city Ekhuenick is probably going to settle for is named YANKTON AI. Has the crisis situation driven Sitting Bull's AI into self-awareness?)
Canada, meanwhile, is probably going to fall for the same gambit in Oohenupa, while other more bountiful cities could be had in Sioux's darkest hour. A future of Canada/Inuit entanglements await.
