Please join us as William Matson shares his book Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life & Legacy which is based on the Crazy Horse family's oral history.
In this biography, the Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to the Lakota war leader, presents the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways the oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it.
This book is a compelling addition to the body of works about Crazy Horse and the complicated and often conflicting events of that time period in American History.
Crazy Horse family members Floyd Clown, an elder for the family, and his brother Doug War Eagle will accompany author William Matson for this event.
