Blunt Horn At Wounded Knee
man and it was how he seemed to be satisfied with his own life. While doing extensive research about the Lakota culture as well as the history, I came across the James R. Walker books. Walker wrote from a medical perspective and used the Lakota people for sources. John Blunt Horn was living his life as a Lakota and was a lay leader in the Episcopol church. I was not the first follower of Christ in my family. John Blunt Horn my great great grandfather rang a bell for the people who lost their lives to the 7th Cavalry on December 29, 1890. On the current gravesite sat the big guns and women and children were found miles aways as they were hunted down like animals. It is sad to note, many of Big Foot's people were Christian had put their faith in Jesus. It is difficult to not be upset with the way America has treated our ancestors.
My life has not been easy but it clear our people have lived more difficult lives. I have taken the name of Blunt Horn because of my mother and my uncle's approval. It an honor to begin the Spring time with an understanding of my history and culture.
