In searching this site I ran across a post made by ladonna in late July of 2008. IE: In the 1885 Standing Rock Ration list Gall had 22 lodges and 114 people in his care. Listed among others are a Tatanka Mani (Walking Bull) , Tatanka Hanska (Long Bull) and a Tatanka Ehani (Old Bull). Could any of these gentlemen be the Buffalo Bull I am looking for? Dietmar in an email, advised I look at the "Sitting Bull Surrender Ledger" of 1881 where he found a man called Tatanka listed as Family head No. 132 in Gall's band of Hunkpapa. I searched for this list but it did not list up to the No. 132 Family head. He was 25 years old and lived with his parents Swift Bird and Becoming Dark in one tipi. Is there a site where I can access a full list? By the way, I think... I recognize ladonna as the "Lady in Red" who spoke at the National Historic Site Dedication of Deer Medicine Rocks. She gave a good speech.

I am researching the Coyotero Apache named “One eye”. In the photo by Gardner 1872 or 1877, his face shows considerable trauma in addition to his missing eye, large contusions on his left face and a deep blunt injury on his forehead which might have been done by a rifle butt or perhaps a war club. My question is: “Were these done in battle against ‘white eye’ or Intertribal wars, or perhaps other accidental causes? So far I can find no information on his personal life. Any information would further my research. Thanks in advance.and Greetings to all. Johannes45
