Feeling Rebloggy
Happy Birthday to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow, the last living Plains Indian War Chief and World War II veteran. He turned 102 years old on Tuesday (10 27 2015)
Chief Dr Joe Medicine Crow at 102
He's been here for Little Big Horn, WWII, and the War in Iraq
That seems like 10 lifetimes to me
Born October 27, 1913 near Lodge Grass, Montana, Dr. Joseph Medicine Crow is the last living person with a direct oral history from a participant of the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876.His grandfather, White Man Runs Him was a scout with General Custer and died in 1925 when Medicine Crow was 11 years old. Dr. Medicine Crow’s grandparents lived before the United States Government sent Indians to a reservation in 1884.
