I took Christel to meet a real Indian today, Dave Bald Eagle. He is a Chief of the Lakota nation and doesn’t live too far from me. I had never been to his house before, but it was pretty easy to find. He is a wise old owl and a neat guy. He told me he is 92. But he doesn’t look it. I see him most years at the Artist Ride.

He is a WWII vet and rode broncs in a Wild West show Casey Tibbs had that toured Europe. He met and married his wife over there.

We had a good visit and one of his grandson’s gave Christel a book of stories about and by Indian women.

We had taken her touring the other day up to Mt Rushmore and to Crazy Horse mountain.

By the way here is a picture of Fred and my young visitor Steve the other day.
