Moxtaveto’s (Black Kettle’s) Extermination on November 27, 1868 & a Request

When I wrote this last March,

The Death & Vision of Moxtaveto (Black Kettle)

Custer was pursuing the snow tracks of Dog Soldiers that would eventually lead to Black Kettle’s village on Thanksgiving Day in a cruel irony. The cruelest irony however, was that Black Kettle and his wife would be slain nearly four years to the day that they both escaped Chivington at the Sand Creek Massacre. Black Kettle’s honesty concerning young men in his village he could not control was of no avail. He and his village were going to be “punished” and broken beyond any immediate or distant recovery.

a Cheyenne Man had me when I was at Washita of the bench where he told me was the location of Moxtaveto’s extermination by Custer.

I sat under the tree facing the Washita River and thought hard about it.

Wounded Knee Massacre & Action Call: Defend The Black Hills (Updated)

I made a comment in “We Will Never Sell (Our Sacred Black Hills),”
and I want to share it with everyone.

You know,

When I listened to the radio show on Native American Calling that discussed “Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee” before it was on HBO, a question was asked, “Are they ready to hear the truth about Native American History?”

My first thought was & is yes.

Your comments and all the others here are just proof that that is in fact so.

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. 

Here is the radio show I was referring to, that was on Native American Calling.
