  1. the book by David Humphreys Miller called “Custer’s Fall” is well worth reading… the truth
    about the ‘battle’ of the Little Big Horn as told by survivors to Miller, and he painted them, and the
    old ones trusted him, gifted him, he wrote 2 books, this one, and another about the Ghost Dance
    and Wovoka, as told to him again by survivors… he was a good painter and writer… he died in ’72
    I believe, and he left his entire collection to a woman, Sandy Solomon, who appears to be a responsible kind person.

    when Reno was attacked (he was attacked first, and the Indian camp was set up for the Sundance and Seven Council Fires circles of camps, most prominent the Hunkpapa and Minneconjou, they were never meeting for war against the cavalry… but they were some of the fiercest and bravest men of their day, and you must understand… unlike today, although protocols were fierce and strict in all aspects of life, complete freedom and individuality existed unknown to today’s modern mind…

    the braves rallied with the help of a few brave men who saw the troops ahead of time, and risked their lives to run and tell the main camps… Sitting Bull was always deferred to, and he had known in a vision during an earlier Sundance that many soldiers in blue would fall into camp (die)

    both Reno and Custer believed there were only a few Indians, and that they would have a quick victory… they split up and Reno was swarmed at one end of the camp although he never made it in, by as clear as the survivors remember, warriers outnumbering the soldiers 10 to 1, maybe more

    Custer was supposed to come to the aid of Reno, if he called for back-up, but Custer was already dreaming of victory and a quick attack miles away on the main body of the camp… he ignored Reno, and he ignored what his Indian scouts (Crow and Arikara were telling him… that there were as many braves as there were bullets in all the soldiers’ guns)

    I will leave the rest of the story for you to find out about… the book is a compelling read, and mind blowing, and shocking… it also verifies who Mary Good Elk Woman was, the sister of Sitting Bull, and mother of One Bull, and White Bull. Mary Good Elk Woman, after her second husband’s passing, married Frederick Dupree… and the rest, as they say, comes full circle

    • Thanks for the info and comment Joan, I haven’t read Miller’s book
      but it’s on the list.
      There is a story that Custer fathered a child with a Cheyenne woman by
      the name of Monahtseta’e, a survivor among the women and children Custer
      took captive at the Washita, and a story that has been adopted by a couple
      of other tribes.
      It is a story open to question as Custer contracted VD during his
      West Point years as a cadet and became sterile as a result. He and
      his wife Libby remained childless during their marriage – one possible
      explanation for this Custer child is that his brother who was also
      part of the 7th cav was the father.
      A child who became known as Yellowtail/Yellowbird and was said to
      have lighter hair and even streaks of blonde.

  2. Now that you mention historical truth and lies coming out of AIM individuals such as Russell Means, I would like to point to one big one noticeable in the prologue of his book “Where White Men…”. I quote him: page 8 second paragraph: “Feather Necklace was among the hundreds who died in the smallpox epidemic – the white man’s plague – that decimated the Yankton Reservation in 1901….”

    I researched small pox epidemics in that area. There was a small pox epidemic in 1781-1782 which decimated the Assiniboine people, and another in 1837. In 1765, a smallpox epidemic may have decimated the Yankton population. As for the date of 1901 cited by Russell Means, and advanced by him as the date Feather Necklace and hundreds perished of smallpox, here is the factual report of the US Indian Agent, John W. Harding, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, from Greenwood, south Dakota, on September 1, 1901: “Health. While the Indians of this agency have undergone the same smallpox scare this year as last, there has not been any alarming results from this disease, only one mixed blood Indian woman dying from same, and only a few other cases reported. There has been no serious epidemic or disease among the Indians at either the school or the agency. Most of the 95 deaths during this year resulted from consumption and old age.”

    Feather Necklace was born in 1884. He would have been 17 years old in 1901. Chief Feather in the Ear, born in 1818, died in 1901, and is buried at the Greenwood Presbyterian Cemetery. He was 83 when he passed away that year, 1901, but not due to smallpox. There were not “hundreds” of Yankton Indians who died of the smallpox in 1901.

    • I think Russell was a man who “cannibalized” the ideas, thoughts, and words
      of others, a personality vampire as another said – tweaking them as he went
      along while claiming to be the fruit of his own “intellect”, familiarity with
      indigenous history, and personal insight.
      Means is routinely exposed for the liar and fraud he was, it is nothing short
      of amazing any would assign credibility to a single word he uttered.
      Ward Churchill undoubtedly had an influence on Means in being an “educated”
      person and wannabe activist that evolved into the Mutt and Jeff act they
      were known for, and the “honor” Means bestowed on him in saying he was a
      reverse apple.
      In the midst of Churchill being outed about his ancestry Russell in one of
      his usual bluster performances went on to say he was proclaiming his bud to
      be a “full blood”.
      Whether intentionally or not people in this hemisphere were ill equipped to
      deal with the diseases they were introduced to with the coming of the Euro
      boat people – ultimately such diseases amounted to a bio weapon, and even to
      this day present a major threat to uncontacted tribes in the Amazon.
      Means relied heavily on the knowledge that a number of people wouldn’t
      investigate his claims, and if they did then all that was required was the
      negative proof of calling them haters.
      Russell wasn’t “controversial” as apologists are prone to say as they follow
      along behind him with a broom and bucket – to the contrary he was excruciatingly
      transparent, a liar and fraud of epic proportions whose priority was the acquisition
      of money and media attention.
      Thanks for the info and comment.

  3. some times rez when I read your blog Im thinking wait a minute then I do as
    you always say and do the math looking in other places.
    touchy is right and not easy to say it isn’t true, respecting you bro for saying
    what you think and backing it up.

    • Considering the nature of the internet and all things
      people should always do at least some measure of the math
      themselves – I respect those who do as I’ve never thought
      of blind acceptance or allegiance as blissful or a good
      place to be.
      It can’t always be how we would like things to be, sometimes
      it can only be how they are.
