Chapter 19

First Stop – Lame Deer — April–May, 1974

I was determined to visit Lame Deer, an Oglala Sioux Holy Man. His book, Lame Deer; Seeker of Visions, enamored me. He lived in ‘Indian Town’, Winner, South Dakota, near the Rosebud reservation. Upon finally meeting him, I was very let down, and disenchanted. He was not the mystic holy man that I imagined him to be. But he did point me to Crow Dog’s Camp on the White River on the Rosebud. Lame Deer said, “Go there. Tell ’em I sent you, see how real Indians live.”
