General Custer’s Death and White Hawk’s Vision: A Poem

White Hawk- Medicine Man of the Lakota Sioux Nation
He was there at Little Big Horn
The Battle of the Greasy Grass
He was there the day Custer died
The day Custer died for the sins
of corporate mining ⛏ interests
in the West
and white settler expansion

June 25th 1876
The day Custer entered Eternity
The day Custer went to the Hell
that does not exist
(according to a 21st Century Pope)

White Hawk watched Custer die
He heard the last words on Custer’s lips
“The White Buffalo is coming”
And then the eyes went blank
and stared into the Heavens
where his soul did not ascend

A year later outside his tepee
on a summer evening
as he smoked the sacred pipe
White Hawk had a vision
A vision of a White Buffalo

He spoke the vision to the people
of his camp
“The one who rides the White Buffalo
will live until the return of the Son
of the Great Spirit”

The outlaw Belvedere heard the statement
Standing alongside him was White Hawk’s lovely and beautiful granddaughter of twenty years
the Lakota Sioux Princess Tanaka

“Who do you suppose will eventually ride the White Buffalo?”
Tanaka asked Belvedere.

“I do not know,” Belvedere shrugged,
“but I guess they’ll live
until the return of the Great Spirit’s Son.”

    The Homestead Act of 1862
    opened the floodgates.
    Abraham Lincoln used it
    as a tactic to win the Civil
    War by outflanking the
    South with an explosion
    of white settlement in the
    Midwest. Too bad if the
    land was already occupied
    by someone else.
    So the war criminal Custer
    was sent in to expedite
    thing, in a genocidal sense.

      Exactly.

        Just ordered two of Richard Kurzweil’s book thanks to your comment. See how your consciousness causes ripples?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, it’s like that old parable about throwing a pebble in a pond and it causes ripples going out to distant shores.

    Custer could have been the Donald Trump of his day

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes if Sitting Bull and the Lakota Sioux Nation hadn’t done America a favour and bumped off General Custer at Little Big Horn, he might have become President of the United States.
