“Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life & Legacy” by William Matson: Floyd Clown Senior Book Talk and Signing

July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Crazy Horse Family Elder, Floyd Clown Sr., and Author William Matson for a discussion and book signing on Thursday, July 11th from 7 to 9 pm at the Skä·noñh- Great Law of Peace Center in Liverpool.  Floyd Clown Sr. will share some of the family’s history that had been shared with him by means of oral tradition. What had become the widely accepted and standard biography of Crazy Horse, is retold in the book, “Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life & Legacy,” by William B. Matson, in which the family clarifies some inaccuracies about their famous ancestor’s life and legacy. Floyd Clown Senior, one of the three sole administrators and spokesmen of the Crazy Horse estate, will also talk about the family’s generational stories, Lakota treaties, what it means to be Lakota, court cases, and probates for ancestry.

This event is open to the public with a sliding scale entry fee to help continue programs such as this.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Skä·noñh Center Gift Gallery.
