Crazy Horse family members to appear in Fort Dodge

Family’s oral history will be shared

Crazy Horse family members Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, and author William Matson will be available to discuss and sign their book “Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy” from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 13 at the Fort Dodge Public Library, 424 Central Ave.

The Crazy Horse family’s oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century. Now it is finally being told by the son and grandsons of Edward Clown, a nephew to Crazy Horse and the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe for the family after his mother Iron Cedar passed away.

Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, South Dakota. This is Matson’s first book.

The event is free and open to the public.
