Crazy Horse Photo
History Detectives goes in search of a Native American legend.
More than a hundred and twenty five years after his death, the name Crazy Horse still echoes in the black hills of South Dakota. In life the Lakota warrior and spiritual man vowed to protect these sacred hunting grounds from encroaching settlers and gold miners.
Despite his fame, Crazy Horse refused to be photographed, shunning technology. For years rumors of Crazy Horse photographs have tantalized collectors.
More than a hundred and twenty five years after the warrior’s death, History Detectives discovers if a framed image is in fact the only photographic image of this legend.
