Have you heard this quote " Today is a good day die"? I wonder where this war cry or motto really originate?

This is a good day to die~Native American pre-battle motto first reported in the Leavenworth, Kansas Weekly Times, 18 Aug 1881. Also reported as a quotation from the Sioux leader Crazy Horse, who shouted "Hóka-héy, today is a good day to die!"

I think that it is mainly attributed to Tasunka Witko, a holy man of the Lakota tribe. Lakota for Crazy Horse as said.
