Well, to begin with I’d like to give a shout out to Silent Bear/ Mark Holtzman for providing an opportunity to segue into “chief of chiefs” Leonard Crow Dog as per SB’s repeated attempts to glamorize the “chief”, though I will be getting back to Peltier.
Everyone is familiar with the murders that took place during the rampage at WK2 as led by Means, Banks, and others under the “spiritual guidance” of Crow Dog.
They’ve toiled long and hard to cover up the truth of it-but as you will see below there’s more to the story than their version in a conversation that took place in 2001:
LCD: You know what? I’m worried. Granddaughter, what I’m worried
is this: Here is Wounded Knee, Got it? ( this while Crow Dog is using a
stick to draw in the dirt) And there’s, somebody’s gonna’ buy that land,
part of that land.
CW:Somebody’s gonna’ buy part of Wounded Knee?
CW: They can do that?
LCD: Yeah, they can do that. The Wounded Knee, the bank, the bank control.
So remember where these people are buried? Not the burial ground.
LCD: That’s our.
CW: The trading post?
LCD: And this way, and that ( drawing with the stick again) The black man.
CW: Now are they, are they under the trading post or the museum? The museum.No?
LCD: Right here. Right here, that’s where buried. Those people.
Crow Dog says the people are not buried under the trading post. He expresses
his fear that the bodies will be found if somebody buys the property.
LCD: And uh, what’s gonna happen is there’s gonna’ be some indictments. And
the indictments might be…if archaeolgists soils checked. This dirt here
come from a few miles from here. It was red dirt. And this was regular
CW: Um hmm.
LCD: So if they soil checked, somebodys gonna’ get indicted.
CW: Cause the dirt is different?
LCD: No. The dirt has been moved. The soil has been moved. So, good of you
to come. Sometime, you talk with Dennis, you have to go, you have to, tell
him I really want to see him before sundance.
LCD: If they pressure Clyde, Clyde might say something.
Crow Dog is also worried that Wallace Black Elk will tell. Crow Dog says that Black Elk’s son Tony relayed a message to him to the effect that if anyone messes with him he will tell where these people are buried. Crow Dog says they need to get an actor or somebody to buy Wounded Knee property, then remove the bodies, then…give it back to the Oglalas.
CW: I didn’t know there were any white people here. I thought it was just
the black guy.
LCD: the other one was I think, just like a Sicilian, or one of those….
CW: Italian or something?
Crow Dog relates an incident a couple of years after Wounded Knee where some
people were going around showing some pictures of the black guy, trying to
find him. CW then tells Crow Dog that the black guy’s wife showed up in Portland showing around a picture of him.
CW says says Madonna Thunder Hawk told her that woman did the same thing in Rapid City at her school. Crow Dog responds “So maybe they’re not informers”. Crow dog says that as recently as three weeks prior to this conversation, he was aware that the guy’s family was still asking around about him. Crow Dog expresses another concern that the bullet did not exit the black guy.
LCD: So what’s gonna’ happen is this. Somebody has to talk to these people.
CW: Which people?
LCD: The black people and those…
CW: The ones who are looking?
LCD: Yeah. Talk to them and calm ’em down. While we get somebody to find them
and blame the Feds.
The “black guy” is obviously Perry Ray Robinson Jr. And the question should arise why is it so important to talk to Dennis Banks? I think that’s equally as obvious-the concern expressed regarding Clyde Bellecourt can only mean he has knowledge of the murders as well and is seen as a weak link.
Plus one should consider Clyde’s minimalist sentence for drug dealing, and ask how would that happen with out making some kind of deal?- and probably Crow Dog’s reason for being concerned about Clyde.
The last statement of “blame it on the Feds” speaks volumes of the long standing strategy of blaming everything on the feds and how people have been duped for decades.
Crow Dog has laid it all out-even what to look for in soil differences and a bullet that never exited Ray’s body, he’s even narrowed the search area in eliminating burial under the museum or trading post -another star witness for the prosecution by his own words and much the same as Peltier has been.
“So maybe they’re not informers”…..a little late for that.
With any luck SB will attempt to glamorize Banks and then we can segue into that as well.
So where are the indictments, and what “actor” does he have mind?
