Crazy Horse Family coming to Armstrong Library
from Staff Reports - NEWS
January 7, 2019 -

Crazy Horse family elder Floyd Clown Sr will join author William Matson to discuss and sign their book "Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life and Legacy" based on the Family’s oral history January 28 at the Judge George W. Armstrong Library located at 220 South Commerce Street from 11:30 to 2 PM in Natchez.

This will be their landmark 202nd appearance as they travel across the United States and Europe. The Crazy Horse family's oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century because the government had been hunting their family members since Crazy Horse was assassinated in 1877. Now, over a century later, it is finally being told by his family. Clown, a son to Edward Clown who was a nephew to Crazy Horse and keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe, will represent his family at the discussion.

Clown currently lives in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation. Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, SD. This is Matson's first book.
