Tribute to Ben Black Elk

Kevin Miller recently wrote, “Over the past year, I have been blessed to befriend Warfield Moose, Jr., a Lakota Sioux Medicine Man. His father was Warfield Moose Sr., who recorded and translated interviews with Ben Black Elk, son of the famous Black Elk, who was one of the most influential Lakota leaders in history. . .”

Comment: I knew Ben for years and he always greeted me and my family like old friends.  However, Ben knew us because we did business with the Mt. Rushmore Gift Shop.  We often talked off-line. He always took extra time to talk to my children and tell them personal words of how to live and respect life.  His wisdom was unlimited and he was a mentor to everyone who would take time to think and care.  DickD
