The Lakota names for Crazy Horse and Custer. Pehin Hanska means Long Hair which is how Custer was known to many of the Lakota.

I've read just about everything I've been able to find on the Apache Wars since that is local history and my wife brought home a book The Journey of Crazy Horse by Joseph M. Marshall III, a Lakota Sioux raised on the Rosebud Reservation telling the story of those wars from the Amerind perspective.

As BI pointed out, my God, we belong to an awful race.
