Annual Crazy Horse Ride Leads Into Oglala Lakota Veterans Pow Wow

The annual Crazy Horse Ride is underway. This year, the 16th annual, is focusing on renewal, after devastating wildfires affected the Great Plains last summer. 

This year's ride began June 2 and is finishing today, June 6. The event is an effort to unify communities, remember Lakota warrior Crazy Horse, honor today’s veterans and provide a safe, cultural experience for Lakota youth, according to organizer Charles "Bamm" Brewer, Oglala Lakota.

Although full of historical importance and signifcance, Brewer wanted to keep things simple. “I want to keep it a humble ride,” he told the Rapid City Journal, stressing the significance of the spiritual and cultural connections the ride provides for him and others.

“It has a huge spiritual impact on me,” Brewer said.
