Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 4:00pm
Crazy Horse family members Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, Don Red Thunder, and author William Matson will be available to meet and sign their book Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy at Old Capitol Books on Tuesday, June 20 at 4pm. This will be the Crazy Horse family and Matson’s only appearance in the Monterey area and one of their few stops in Northern California.
The Crazy Horse family’s oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century. Now it has been put into print for everyone to read as told by Clown, War Eagle, and Red Thunder who are the son and grandsons of Edward Clown, a nephew to Crazy Horse. He was the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe for the family after his mother, Iron Cedar, passed away. Their book includes new information on one of America’s most famous events, the battle of Little Bighorn, including who killed Custer, how he was killed, and what happened to his missing index finger.
Clown, War Eagle, and Red Thunder currently live in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation. Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, SD. This is Matson’s first book.
