THE CONQUEROR OF CUSTER
Crazy Horse - Tasunke Witko

William J. BordeauxIN MY attempts to discover facts in connection with the life of Crazy Horse I have only approached those people whom I deemed to be reliable, and in my capacity as a Federal Indian Interpreter for the U. S. District Attorney's Office and as a member of the Brule Sioux, I believe I have been able to obtain access to information that will throw additional light on the character of Crazy Horse which helps to show more effectively the part that he has played in the history of his times. Among those whom I intervied including my own rela-tives were some who had taken an actual part in some of the incidents that I have dealt with. My grandfather James Bordeaux was an early French fur trader among the Sioux and my grandmother was a full-blooded Sioux of the Minni-Kan-Wojo band. My father Louis Bordeaux was an interpreter for the Government in the early 70's and much of the information I have selected was taken from a collection of historical notes made by him during his lifetime. I believe that all the facts in this book are true and I have tried to avoid the inclusion of any material that might be considered doubtful.

Since the discovery of the Red Man, most historians who have dwelt on Indian lore, have accepted their information from sources close to the military authorities and from Indian Agency Officials. While these reports are undoubtedly true as far as they go, they do not always represent the entire picture. In addition, glamourous chieftains have sometimes excited an interest in the public mind that was out of all proportion to their true worth.

Of the many Sioux War-Chiefs who have achieved national recognition perhaps the one who has been most worthy of esteem has been the least considered of them all. The reasons for this are several. In the first place he was of a reserved nature and not given to a great show of affability even among the members of his own race, and secondly few white people ever encountered him; also he died at a time when general hostility between Whites and Indians had not entirely died out, and before reporting an interviewing had become a daily part of the life of outstanding personalities.

The exact location of the birthplace of Crazy Horse has never been absolutely established and opinions differ. While some have declared that he was born near Laramie, Wyoming, others have believed that it was in the Dakota region. In view of this uncertainty, I interviewed several near relatives of the noted warrior including a full sister, Mrs. Clown.

In my interview with her at her home, about seven miles East of the Thunder Butte Sub Station on the Cheyenne River Indian reservation, she told me...
