The Celebration of the Battle of Greasy Grass

There is no work today. Today is a tribal holiday and even though I work for the school, I have the day off.

Today is the day the Lakota and Northern Cheyenne paired up to defeat the 7th Calvary in 1876.

It is better known as Custer's Last Stand or the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Today is the day my people took the flag away from the government and basically kicked ass.

Today is a celebration, no matter what anyone says.

I am having a cook out.

Remember that when you are watching the evening news.

That somehere in America, Lakota girl is celebrating with her family the power of her people long ago.

The General he don't ride well anymore....
With victories he was swimmin' he killed children dogs and women
But the General he don't ride well anymore...
Crazy Horse sent out the call just to Sitting Bull and Gall....
And the General he don't ride well anymore...
Now Custer split his men well, he won't do that again...Cause the General he don't ride well anymore...
Twelve thousand warriors waited they were unanticipated....
And the General he don't ride well anymore...


Enjoy your celebration..You and yours have earned it....
