Recording and Remembering

This week’s CAIRNS Etanhan Wotanin column was inspired by last weeks prisoner exchange of Brittany Griner (USA) and Viktor Bout (Russia).  But instead of the USA and Russia, the exchange was between the Arikara nation and the Hunkpapa nation in the late summer of 1862. The column, “Recording and Remembering,” can be read now by clicking hereor later this week in the Lakota Times newspaper. The image above is of two glyphs on the White Horse winter count. The blazing star glyph represents one or both of the comets that were visible even during the day in 1910. The glyph of a man and horse represents Martin White Horse, who died in 1910.
