I have encapulated the historical path that is documented historical/archival information pertaining to the original WBCP(s).
Martha Bad Warrior, ALH’s Great-Grandmother was adopted by Old Man Elk Head, as he was called. This came about from his time at Turtle Mountain Manitoba during ceremony with the SCFC between 1834-1839, recorded in the Nicolette Journals from that time period.
Old Man Elk Head was the representative of the Seven Council Fires Council from the Cheyenne River region of the Western Teton Sioux.
Martha Bad Warrior was born in 1837, and from the Elk Head families recent information sent to me in Nov 07, was a Dakota from the North, not a Lakota by birth…well, North of Cheyenne River is Turtle Mountain, Manitoba, just over the medicine line of North Dakota.
I have cross referenced this information with the Eddie Herman Collection in the SI, that says Martha Bad Warrior was a Dakota…and, was the only woman “Keeper” ever of the WBCP.
What is the beauty of this information is there is no bloodline between Martha Bad Warrior & the Elk Head family…and, she obviously married into the Bad Warrior family, which has been a recognized family of “Keepers”/caretakers of the original WBCP(s), and (is recorded as such, by Wilbur A. Riegert’s info of Martha’s telling of the linage of the Pipe(s) in “Quest for the Pipe of the Sioux, As Viewed from Wounded Knee” copyright 1975).
Since the origin of Martha’s Dakota birthplace was the area where the Tetuwan governmental body of the Siouan Nation was located, it is understandable why she took it upon herself to take possession of the Pipe(s) from Old Man Elk Head when he died, because her family/Oyate there at Cheyenne River was becoming Christianized.
From the family’s tone, the Elk Head family was not pleased by her taking possession of the Cannunpa Wakan, but from Martha’s original Dakota origin, could not dispute her claim to It, because the adoption, the making of relatives (Hunka Ceremony) between the Dakota, (which were the largest voting body of the Seven Council Fires Council) and, the Lakota “Keepers” of the Sacred Pipe(s), united the two Dakota/Lakota together by family (Oyate).
The Dakota’s larger voting ability would have allowed this to happen for the good of the people of the Seven Council Fires Council and all of mankind, as the original teachings of the Pipe(s) from WBCPW dictated from Creator.
The Seven Council Fires Council broke down in the 1860’s because of war, and the death of Sleepy Eye, who was the Grand Chief of the SCFC, had not named a successor. The tribes of the SCFC never had the opportunity to rebuild itself because of this. However, from all indications it was always the intention that it be rebuilt, and why Fools Crow’s presence at Turtle Mountain in the 1930’s shows this intention to do so, by the making of the 14 Buffalo Calf Pipes Fools Crow commissioned Standing Eagle/George Bryant Ojibway/Lakota of Pipestone, Minnesota to make for this purpose.
One for each of the men, along with one for each their female counterparts of the Seven Tribes of the SCFC…balance.
This also allowed the women to regain their rightful place in society & ceremony that had been lost with the patriarchial colonial concept that tipped this balance from its matriarchial origin.
We had been a matriarchial society before contact.
All of the information began to make sense, after the Elk Head information & the Eddie Herman Collection verified Martha’s connection to the Turtle Mountain Dakota.
At the end of the day, the current information provided is not accurate, and is self serving, where the original intention of the Pipe(s) is for the good of all mankind, regardless of race, creed, color, gender or blood quantum.
I am writing this disertation to provide this correct information to the people.
It has been quite a puzzle to reconstruct with the limited information available, (written mainly by non-native archeologists, self-serving anthropologists, the Smithsonian… from the deceptive data given them from the most current information available 1964-1967.
(Demallie) & given to the Smithsonian, but with much contraversy today) and, with so many other falsehoods out there by people with a personal agenda…but, it is all who are fighting the good fight… feel this is about to change with the newest information about AIM & Arvol Looking Horse’s fraud, & AIM’s numerous govt sanctioned murder/rapes information shown in the “Conflict of Interest” series of blog posts on Rezinate’s WordPress blog.
Known caretakers of the Cannunpa Wakan/re: accuate information available in “I am a Sioux Indian”/”Quest for the Pipe of the Sioux, As Viewed from Wounded Knee”/W. A. Riegert, author.
*Wibur A. Riegert was a Dupris-Dupuis-Dupree’s life long family friend, former allotment agent at Cheyenne River (CRST) Agency in the 1930’s/curator for the Wounded Knee Museum prior to AIM’s occupation & the US Govt staged event dubbed by the media in the 1970’s as the “Seige of Wounded Knee” when AIM destroyed the WK township, & attempted to locate & destroy the original Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin/Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, of which AIM was unsuccessful in doing.
(AIM leadership & the puppetmaster look a little concerned that Adrienne Riegert-Fritze & John Trimbach’s reality of events at their WK presentation, & participation at the Dakota Conference last April 27-28, 2012, do not match up with AIM & the puppetmaster’s carefully constructed, well crafted government-state lies/propaganda/ & Hollyweird’s creation (PBS)…. of these evil men as heros, role models & saviors of 1st Nations people…!)
#1) Standing Hollow Horn/Lakota, the good Lakota man/who was made Chief by his people for not participating in the molestation assault of White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman.
*Standing Hollow Horn, turned the duties of the Sacred Pipe, White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman brought to the people over to Two Runs (no blood on the hands of the Cannunpa caretaker of any kind/Chief would need to protect & lead his people….where this blood transfer could occur, our holy men did not even hunt for their own food, it was provided for our Hunoup speaking Bear Medicine Society…no blood of any kind on the hands of the caretaker…not even the life of a bug.
#2) Two Runs/Lakota, the second caretaker/ who expanded the duties & ceremonies used with the Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin
#3) Bad Warrior, next caretaker after Two Runs *(one)
#4) Elk Head/old Man Elk Head/Red Hair…Martha Bad Warrior’s adopted Lakota father *(two)
*Martha passed the catlinite Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin (& buried the Buffalo Legbone Cannunpa, ((that WBCPW brought to the Lakota)) It was no longer to be used in It’s decaying condition) to my Uncle Andrew Dupris & his wife Ariel before Martha died on Oct 25th, 1936.
*This is to acknowledged by ALL!
Once a Cannunpa is buried in any manner, for any reason…once It’s use here on Earth has come to an end & It can no longer be used as intended…and, It is buried, It is NOT to be used again…period, especially for personal profit or for political gain.
*Andrew showed the Cannunpa Wakan to Wibur A. Riegert, who’s car Andrew borrowed when he & his wife returned the vehicle from their trip to Green Grass to Wilbur at Cheyenne River Agency, where Wilbur worked as the allotment agent, feeding the Lakota.
Also, recording births, deaths & marriages…(which is why Wilbur Riegert was the go to man…to know who was who, pertaining to the Cannunpa, & why Wilbur was chosen by Martha Bad Warrior to photograph the Seven Council Fires Cannunpa, & record the Legacy of the Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin in August 1936 before Martha died in October…1936, just a few months short of being one hundred years old.
Marie Elk Head Fiddler is a Grand daughter of William Elk Head.
This is the true original family of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe care takers, Marie and family are working at correcting the current misrepresentation of Arvol Looking Horse.
Arvol Looking Horse isn’t a blood family member of the Elk Head family as testified by Marie Elk Head Fiddler in May 2009 via Utube video on link above.
He doesn’t possess the White Buffalo Pipe!
The Looking Horse family never had it, what has occurred is nothing more than a FRAUD!!!!!!
According to reliable sources there are seven (7) modern day peace pipes in the Bundle they have at his place in Green Grass, South Dakota re: Proclaimation 2003 call to all pipe carriers to give Arvol their Cannunpas, many did including My Two Beads Worth, she said what she sent to Arvol was identical to what I carry, only without the two lightening bolts at the foot of the buffalo facing the bowl….
Marie has recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness and desires to correct history concerning the true caretakers of the Sacred Cannupa, which are her family, the true descendants of Elk Head.
Arvol Looking Horse cannot produce his proof of his family lineage to the Elk Head family!
ARVOL LOOKING HORSE HAS BEEN INVITED TO NO LESS THAN THREE MEETINGS IN THE EAGLE BUTTE, SD AREA TO BRING HIS PAPERS AND HIS PROOF, but he refused to attend, or face his Lakota Elders & fellow Cheyenne River Tribal Members.
Our Group of Dedicated Lakota People have dedicated our selves to help this family correct and bring out the truth that Arvol has been fooling the world.
His immediate family hasn’t been portraying the spiritual family life style… unless money is involved.
Make up your own minds on what to believe, but you only have one opportunity to make the right choice & do the right thing…for our future & our children…!
*Andrew Dupris did not caretake the Cannunpa Wakan long, for he passed the Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin, to Nicolas Black Elk & his nephew, Frank Fools Crow….where It remained in their care together… caring for It’s daily duties until Nicolas died in 1950, & then Frank carried on alone….
Frank was always looking for the Tetuwan Lakota who would return from the Ancestors & the otherside camp…to love, protect, & move It’s teachings & temporal benefits forward for future generations…& as Martha recited on that hot August day as Wilbur recorded her words & took photographs…
The Sacred Pipe was to be used for all time, (but, It’s Legacy has been pimped out by Arvol Looking Horse & AIM for decades now, for profit & to garner further protection & immunity from their handlers)….for the betterment of all mankind, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, or blood quantum…to be used as a Peacemaker between Nations…
*(Obviously, why the US/CA governments & it’s faux Indian Leaders do NOT want the original Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin available to heal & help the people…no money or glory in peace, eh?)
#6) Frank Fools Crow-Ceremonial Chief & Holy Man of the Western Tetuwans/Nicolas Black Elk-FFC’s Uncle & spiritual mentor/author “The Sacred Pipe” with Joseph Epes-Brown.
#7) Dupree/Calvin-Professor of Native Studies U of Lethbridge/Sun Dancer/Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin carrier/caretaker
#8) Dupree/Looking Back Woman-named by Frank Fools Crow August 18th, 1975 at Green Grass, South Dakota/gifted her 1st Cannunpa by the Lakota people when she was 20 years old at her naming ceremony Aug 18, 1975, the former personal Cannunpa of Red Hair, which she still carries today with the Calf Pipe.
*Martha Bad Warrior is viewed as the only Tetuwan woman (at the time/early 1900’s to October 1936) to be caretaker of the Calf Cannunpa, & Martha is considered the 3rd & last bloodline caretaker of the original buffalo legbone”Calf Pipe, she brought to the Lakota, as well as the catlinite, Standing Buffalo facing the bowl pipestone Cannunpa, WBCPW taught the Lakota Chief’s to make before she left the Lakota turning into a red, then… yellow, then… black & lastly a white buffalo (the colors of the four directions & colors of man) before she left us, with the promise to return when again when the white buffalo once again is born… as a sign of her pending return to us as promised.
*And, we all know how that has been working out…
Everyone trying to make a buck of the births, her return…like AIM, Arvol, & all the wannbe Indians/frauds….
But, when She Whope… does arrive, it will be as it was in the beginning…a vapor, snakes, & then a pile of bones where the offender had been!
To the Light & Love of Our Father, Creator…forever & a day!
Pilamayaye yelo, Wakan Tanka!
