Nahko on “Make No Bones About It.” October 22, 2017 at 5pm

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.”

Willamette Week: Garden of Weedin’

http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-6541-garden_of_weedin.htm

Tonight we will be sharing about honoring our Uncle Billy Frank Jr. 

Photo from Hank Adams and written by Hank Adams

Mark Hoover’s photo of Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC) chairman Billy Frank Jr. (published 2017). Northwest Treaty Tribes, Peggen Frank There is presently a proposal pending before the Port of Olympia to rename Marine Drive west of Olympia’s East Bay as “Billy Frank Jr. Way”- with Petitions circulating in support of that action. Marine Drive ends in vicinity and site of the Protocols and Welcoming of Canoes for the respective Paddle to Squaxin Island Canoe Journey 2012 and the Paddle to Nisqually Canoe Journey 2016. The following is my statement in support of the Petitions for the renaming as circulated variously by Brian M Frisina, Freddie Xwenang Lane, Colleen Jollie, Peggen Frank and others:
“Billy Frank Jr. descends from honored 19th Century-born leaders of each the Squaxin Island and Nisqually Indian Nations whose ancestral boundaries touch in the waters of Budd’s Inlet west of Marine Drive. In December 2000, the Memorial and Life Celebration for “Jim” Heckman – the most significant non-tribal witness in the federal case of United States v. Washington (Boldt Decision 1974) – was held on East Bay Drive parallel to and in sight of the site where Heckman set up his Marine Drive USF&WS one-man office in 1962 near the KGY Radio tower and became one of Billy Frank Jr.’s closest friends and colleagues. Billy Frank’s last fishing arrest came not on the Nisqually River but rather at the floodgates connecting and separating Budd’s Inlet from Capitol Lake in Olympia. Billy Frank’s ‘formal schooling’ ended in attendance at Washington Junior High and Olympia High School – both in Olympia. That was noted when he was confirmed by the Washington State Senate in Olympia as a Trustee for The Evergreen State College to serve an extended term as Trustee from 1996 into 2003 under Governors Mike Lowry and Gary Locke. Additional to his work with 20 tribes’ Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC) from 1977 until May 5, 2014, Billy Frank, Jr. was appointed by Washington Governor Christine Gregoire to serve as one of the co-Chairs of the original Puget Sound Partnership (along with Bill Ruckleshaus and Jay Manning) to lead “the region’s collective effort to restore and protect Puget Sound” – the “deep fjord estuary” extending from the U.S.-Canadian border southward through the broader Salish Sea and southwesterly to the environs of Marine Drive in Olympia, WA. Under U.S. Presidents Carter and Reagan, Billy was named to the diplomatic team negotiating conclusion of the 1985 ratified Pacific Salmon Treaty between the U.S. and Canada directed at limiting harvest interceptions of salmon returning home to all the waters of Puget Sound – and in the early 1990’s Billy was instrumental in convincing Third World Nations in the United Nations General Assembly to finally ban the “walls of death” fishing nets of up to 20-miles in length in open ocean international waters. In November 2015. Billy Frank, Jr., posthumously was awarded the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (PMOF), by U.S. President Barack Obama. And BTW, Billy was a U.S. Marine. But more relevant to a renaming of “Marine Drive,” is the fact that Billy Frank, Jr., was a fisherman.”
