Crazy Horse family elder Floyd Clown Sr 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 February 23 at Baltimore American Indian Center located at 113 South Broadway from 2 PM to 4 PM in Baltimore.
This will be their landmark 308th 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.
Books will be available at the signing.
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.
