CRAZY HORSE FAMILY MEMBERS TO APPEAR IN SHREVEPORT
Crazy Horse family elders Floyd Clown Sr and his brother Doug War Eagle will join author William Matson to discuss and sign their book "Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life and Legacy" based on the Family’s oral history. They will appear December 1 at the Shreve Memorial Library located at 424 Texas Street from 10 AM to 12 PM in Shreveport.
This will be their 181st appearance as they travel across the United States and Europe. The Crazy Horse family's oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century because the government had been hunting their family members since Crazy Horse was assassinated in 1877. Now, over a century later, it is finally being told by his family. Clown, a son to Edward Clown who was a nephew to Crazy Horse and keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe, will represent his family at the discussion.
Clown currently lives in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation. Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, SD. This is Matson's first book.
The event is free and open to the public.
