NAHKO – MY NAME IS BEAR so many dear people helped me write and live these stories. the two summers i spent in alaska, half the winter in louisiana and the other half holed up in my van in portland, and then the first year in hawaii were transformational and pivotal to shaping me into who i am today. those 3 years before i met my mother would offer a reclaiming of my name, finding new faith and fever for my own spiritual connection to Creator, and discovering first love. these were just a few of the important discoveries for a young cub set on exploring the world and finding himself amongst the wild.

Floyd Clown and Bill Matson on “Make No Bones About It”. October 22 at 5:30 pm

The Crazy Horse family members Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, and author William Matson

The Crazy Horse family members Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, and author William Matson will be available to meet and sign their book Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy in several locations. Find out more about the book.  They will be exclusively in the ~Pacific Northwest from Oct 27-Nov 18. 


The Crazy Horse family’s oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century. Now it is ready to be told by Clown, War Eagle, and Red Thunder who are the son and grandsons of Edward Clown, who was the nephew to Crazy Horse and the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe for the family after his mother Iron Cedar passed away.

Their book includes what they know about one of Montana’s biggest events, the battle of the Little Bighorn including who killed Custer, how he was killed, and what happened to his missing index finger. It also contains additional history that pertains to Montana.

Clown, War Eagle, and Red Thunder currently live in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation. Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, SD but is originally from Tacoma, Washington. This is Matson’s first book.

The Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to the Lakota war leader, presents the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways the oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it.
This book is a compelling addition to the body of works about Crazy Horse and the complicated and often conflicting events of that time period in American History.
Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, and Don Red Thunder are the sole administrators and spokesmen of the Crazy Horse estate and often speak at historical gatherings and national parks about their family’s history.
William Maston  has produced and directed an award-winning video, Sitting Bull’s Voice, as well as the two-part video series, The Authorized Biography of Sitting Bull by His Great-Grandson, and the four-part video series, The Authorized Biography of Crazy Horse and His Family. He regularly speaks about these videos and their content at film festivals and has been working with the Crazy Horse family since 2001 to tell their story.  

“Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle, and Don Red Thunder are the sole administrators and spokesmen of the Crazy Horse estate.”
