I am now in Hardin, MT, very close to the Little Big Horn Battlefield. On Sunday, June 18th, Father’s Day, a few of us met with several Crow and Cheyenne Native American descendants of warriors who fought either with Custer as scouts (Crow Indians) or against him (Cheyenne). They have been gracious enough to show us things and tell us things never written about, and which we would never have known. I also managed to photograph newly discovered Native American artifacts – perhaps for a Second Edition of “Artifacts of the Battle of Little Big Horn.”
I’ll be in Hardin until next Sunday, at the Custer Battlefield Historical and Museum Association symposium, and then home on Monday. A great trip, but I’ll be happy to get home to my lovely wife and new Sheltie, Stormy.
