Learn about historic Lakota leader Crazy Horse at MCPL Wausau
Learn more about a legendary figure in American history, Crazy Horse, from members of his own family on August 22 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Marathon County Public Library’s Wausau Headquarters, 300 N. First St., Wausau.
The Crazy Horse family’s oral history had not been told outside the family for over a century. Now it is finally being told by Floyd Clown, a son of Crazy Horse’s nephew Edward Clown, as well as Floyd Clown’s two sons Doug War Eagle and Red Thunder. Floyd Clown is the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe for the family after his mother Iron Cedar passed away.
Author William Matson shaped the family’s history into a 2016 book, Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy, and he will be joined by Floyd Clown and War Eagle for this interesting and engaging afternoon presentation. A Q&A and signing will follow the presentation.
This event is free and open to the public with no registration required. For more information, call 715-261-7230 or visit https://mcpl.us/events/5738.
