I have been in contact with Robert Leopold at the Smithsonian Institute about the inaccuracies of the photo of Martha Bad Warrior given to you by Belva Jack & her Father, Joe Thin Elk of Mission, South Dakota, and donated by you in 1966 to the Smithsonian.
Robert Leopold says since you donated it, the changes have to come from you.
The information-provenance on the photo has been changed & is inaccurate.
This is my Tetuwan Lakota tribe, my Oyate-family, and is in copyright infringement of Wilbur A Riegert’s work.
I am aware you have spoke with Bud Johnston, from Keepers of the Sacred Traditional of Pipemaking at Pipestone, Minnesota, and have told him you were aware of the two stories about the Cannunpa Wakan-Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin.
Riegert’s documentation from Martha Bad Warrior, herself… and this false information by Jack & Thin Elk.
Leopold also assured me you’d be at the Smithsonian in two weeks, and review the material and make the necessary corrections for the copyrighted material-photo belonging to Wilbur A. Riegert you donated to the Smithsonian to be accurate.
I have offered to Robert Leopold, an invitation for you to come and examine my documentation from Frank Fools Crow, Riegert, my Father, Prof. Calvin Dupree, and that of Turtle Mountain Dakota in Manitoba, and that of the Elder’s at Pipestone.
We all have the same information, and this does not correspond with what is currently available from academia of which you are viewed & heralded as the Expert in Lakota Religion.
Also, I spoke with Beatrice Medicine before she died, and she assured me the Riegert info was accurate of our Lakota Spiritual History.
Beatrice Medicine portrayed White Buffalo Calf Pipe Winyan in 1977, & she has stated her nephew, Arvol Looking Horse is a fraud.
With this much information, from this many Lakota/Dakota sources, and from other archived documentation, such as the Nicolette Journals, with the proper corresponding information pertaining to the Coming of the Cannunpa Wakan by WBCPW between 1500-1600, not 2000 yrs ago as is the current theme associated with the information you’ve presented to the Smithsonian.
I ask you to please make the necessary changes, so the truth of the Cannunpa Wakan is available for all to see, not the fairy tale faux spiritual history supplied by Looking Horse & AIM, that is currently used to canvass the International Communities for hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent donations.
I will be turning over my documented provable research to the media, since Robert Leopold no longer returns my correspondence, or calls… if I do not have contact from you within a reasonable amount of time.
Either the Smithsonian has correct information housed within it’s institution or, it is what the US Government wants as Lakota Spiritual History…..bought and paid for & controlled by AIM & Arvol Looking Horse.
Are you yourself Lakota?
I see you’ve written much about my Tetuwan Lakota people, hopefully it also has not been tampered with for the consumption of the dominant society.
Please be directed to www.lookingbackwoman.ca or online at Heyoka Magazine for more information pertaining to my family’s connection to the Cannunpa Wakan, and how we’ve been written out of history.
