Eagle Elk Recalls Crazy Horse
An Oglala Sioux's recollections of Crazy Horse

From an interview with John G. Neihardt, November 27, 1944.

Note

EAGLE ELK ON CRAZY HORSE

Oglala Sioux warrior Eagle Elk in his 93rd year in 1944MY FATHER was already related to Crazy Horse's father. They were cousins. He [Crazy Horse] choose to call me "cousin" from the marriage of his mother. Many times on war campaigns that I was in, he [Crazy Horse] was always in that same party; he was a very brave man. He does not attack the enemy ... [for the purpose of counting] coup as many times as he can. He does not count many coups. He is in front and attacks the enemy. If he shoots down an enemy, he does not count coup. He drops behind and let others count three or four coup counts. He takes the last coup.... I often wondered why he did that. He had such a reputation that he did not have to get more of that. My father married Crazy Horse's aunt. 1

Crazy Horse had an organization. I refer to a sort of organization where they don't feast and dance, but they were just followers of [him and consisted of] more than forty selected warriors. This organization was called the Last Child [Society] (Ho-ksi-ha-ka-ta) [Hoksi Hakata]. They were all very brave warriors and always went out with him and fought with him. He picks the last child in the family. If they did great deeds or something very brave, then they would have greater honor than the first child. They were always making themselves greater. I had three older sisters, an older brother and a younger brother. The older brother was killed in a war.

One day a crier...
