The John that is being mentioned is John Smith & it is Demallie talking... re: Demallie using Riegert's
copyright photo without permission, or authorization in South Dakota Museum News 1967 with Demallie.

The reason why they could not open the bundle for Smith, Demallie & the others mentioned is, the Looking
Horse family never had the Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin in the first place!
