The Internet Guide to OA Insignia


CRAZY HORSE, the greatest of all the Lakota Warrior-Chiefs, "TA-SHUNKA-WITCO", the "Strange One", of the Oglala Sioux.

CRAZY HORSE, called Curly throughout boyhood, born on Rapid Creek, About 1842.

CRAZY HORSE, killed at Fort Robinson, September 5, 1877 (Recorded dates show from September 4, 5, and 6, 1877 in Historical accounts of the killing).

Curly, son of Crazy Horse, the Oglala Holy Man, given his name, CRAZY HORSE, from his father who then took the name Worm.

MY SON HAS BEEN AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF UNKNOWN TOUNGE,
HE HAS DONE A BRAVE THING;
FOR THIS I GIVE HIM A NEW NAME, THE NAME OF HIS FATHER, AND OF
MANY FATHERS BEFORE HIM
I GIVE HIM A GREAT NAME.
I CALL HIM CRAZY HORSE.

-- from Norm Bunch (bunchbsa@enetis.net)
