    Thank you for listing the names that were murdered here on 12-29-1890.
    I would like to know and ask you about the man called He Crow, his picture? His Family? Was He Crow related to Big Foot? Any information on Ghost Horse, picture and was he related to He Crow or Big Foot?
    I thank you for the work that you have done here and I thank you in advance for any help you can share with me on the questions that are above. I know we are getting close to the date of December 29, 1890 and I want to pay tribute to all that have fallen.
    I have a Facebook Group page titled as: Remember Wounded Knee. If you want to share anything from your page, or join this group we would welcome you.
    Thank you very much,
    Thomas B. Young

  2. Robert Schepens (Whiteowl): I do not have any info about He Crow, however, my Ina (Hunka Rez Mom) might. She moved from Pine Ridge to Cleveland 2 years ago, and I will be seeing her next week. I will re-post here with anything I find out. I know that Ina
