    I am one of his great-grand kids. I am way too young to have ever met this very famous American Indian, he is my great-grand father. I will always be proud of him, I am the only one that looks like him. May the Great Lord protect him forever and ever.

    Read about him in the book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. A hell of a warrior and leader for his people. Nothing respect for this man. Should be a National Holiday for him.
