Reading for Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life & Legacy

Annie Bloom's welcomes William Matson, Floyd Clown, and Doug War Eagle to present Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life & Legacy.

Our speakers tonight have announced that they will be signing books before the reading as well -- if you are able to stop by early and participate in the meet & sign, it will begin at 6pm. The main event will start at 7pm, and there will be another opportunity to get your book signed after the discussion! Hope to see you there!

The Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to the Lakota war leader, presents the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways the oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it. This book is a compelling addition to the body of works about Crazy Horse and the complicated and often conflicting events of that time period in American History.

Floyd Clown and Doug War Eagle are administrators and spokesmen of the Crazy Horse estate. William Matson is an award-winning video producer and has been working with the Crazy Horse family since 2001 to tell their story.
