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 November 29 at the
Texarkana Public Library located at 600 W 3rd Street from 6 to 8 PM
This will be their 180th 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
Clown currently lives in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River
Reservation. Matson, a documentary filmmaker, currently resides in
Spearfish, SD. This is Matson’s first book.
The event is free and open to the public.
