at Wounded Knee.The story of the expulsion of the Northern Cheyenne to Oklahoma & their subsequent efforts to return to their homeland in Montana is surely nothing short of heroic.Certainly the Cheyenne engaged in warfare against farmers etc but in their eyes it was a rite of passage to return to the land that they had called home.The internment in Fort Robinson with little food \supplies & the subsequent escape
and battle certainly brings out many emotions.
I am visiting the U.S. soon and during our trip I intend to visit Fort Robinson& the Mari Sandoz Cultural Centre in Chadron NE. Before we head west ,part of our time will be spent in New York where a visit to the Museum of Natural History is planned .One of the many Native American exhibits there is the Ledger Book of Little Finger Nail ,Cheyenne Warrior & artist.Little Finger Nail had the ledger on him when he was killed in the ""Battle of the Pit"", some after the Cheyenne escaped from Fort Robinson.It was Little Finger Nail who spoke at a meeting of the Cheyenne while they were still at the reservation in Oklahoma with these brilliant words.""If we die here & go to the burial rocks, no one will speak our names. So now we go north, and if we die in battle along the way, our names will be remembered by all the people. They will tell the story and say , this is the place. How true.
Sandoz's 'Crazy Horse,' imho, is the best book ever done on Crazy Horse.
