They came from California, Colorado, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C. – and Alberta, Canada, and even Switzerland – to south-central Montana yesterday to watch a re-enactment as educational as it was exciting. (Read about it here.)
The annual presentation is told from the perspective of the Indian people involved, and was written by Crow historian Joe Medicine Crow.
Among the participants was P.J. Pease of Hardin, Mont., who is Crow and Lakota. He says the role he plays of a Crow warrior – he’s done it for 13 of the event’s 20 years – carries forward to today: “That we will never stop fighting for our rights.”
