CETANWAKUAMANI (HE WHO HUNTS SPARROWHAWKS WALKING)-IS ANOTHER NAME FOR LITTLE CROW #4 (depending on the source)...

Members: I don't think you are aware that there is big book, a biography of Little Crow by Mark Diedrich ( Rochester, MN) published by Coyote Books. It is a big soft cover book 8 1/2 X 11 and 350 some odd pages. I think the cost for the book is about $35.00, and the date of publication is perhaps 2007.

thank you both, Dietmar and Sonny - there is, to say the least, a lot of confusion surrounding the descendants of Little Crow. There is also Thomas Wowinape Wakeman with whom Little Crow was picking berries on that fateful day that he got shot by Nathan and Chauncey Lamson. See link on www.findagrave.com - www.findagrave.com/memorial/32739206/thomas-wakeman.
Thomas is well documented and by all accounts seems to be a direct lineal son of Little Crow. However beyond Thomas Wakeman there are people claimed to be the latter's children (i.e. Little Crow's grandchildren) where it gets inconsistent, i.e. the dates do not match up - born several years after Thomas' death.
I think there are some things that need further discussion. First, the old portrait identified by some archives as Little Crow. It seems a "Jr." is added, to distinguish him from the earlier Little Crow, who for example signed the Treaty of Prairie du Chien in 1825.
Clearly he is not the Little Crow of 1862, who only was photographed in Washington 1858 and probably a year later by Whitney in Minnesota.
But is he his son? I´m at least skeptical. Surely this is an early photograph, taken perhaps in the early 1860s. Until now I thought he could be an Ojibwa.
A second portrait of the man was posted on Ebay some time ago:
I spoke to one member of the Little Crow (kangicistidan - a dynasty name) family. He says the family never herd of a William Little Crow. I have read about A Chief Little Crow located on the Sioux Valley Reserve in Manitoba, Canada. This is probably the man in photographs. Oak River Reserve # 58 changed its name in 1961 to Sioux Valley. Louie Garcia, Ft. Totten, ND
This is supposed to be Wakeman sitting at the centre of this group in 1887. I don't see it, to be honest.
Little Crow's wife and children - both boys and clearly neither is Wowinape
Little Crow's daughters - one of which is Mary Little Crow Renville, Fort Snelling, 1862? 1864?
Little Crow - father of the subject of this thread?
Little Crow by Frank Blackwell Mayer, 1851
Little Crow (left) and White Cap, refugees of the Minnesota massacre. This isn't THE Little Crow. I think it's 1881 at Fort Qu'Appelle, thouigh it could be a Boundary Commission sketch made in 1874. If it is 1881, White Cap's clothing is remarkably native bearing in mind what he looks like four years later. So... it would appear there was another Dakota Little Crow who made it to Canada and stayed there.
It's not that I'm necessarily going to disagree, but I´m still struggling with the alleged two early portraits of Little Crow Jr.
If it was indeed taken around 1860, the dates don´t match with the information on Cleveland Little Crow.
The picture above (scanned from which book?) states William Cleveland was born 'before 1863' and died 1924.
Let´s say he was even born as early as his sisters Emma or Jane, then he would be not older than 16 or 11 in 1860. The man in the two photos appears as a much older tribal leader, even if you shift the date of the photos to 1870.
I know there are a lot unanswered questions (who took the photos, and when exactly), but that´s my opinion at the moment.
