“I’m writing again because this morning, around 10 a.m., an inmate next to me said, ‘It’s here, Chief,'” wrote Young Bird, a Native American from South Dakota.
As the summer dragged on and the coronavirus rampaged across middle America, Young Bird kept writing to U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange.
Complicating the situation, Lange said, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe had banished Young Bird from his home due to the drug conviction.
Following the death of his sister, Young Bird hosted a large dinner in the South Dakota town of Dupree to honor her memory.
It was something I’ll never forget.”After Young Bird died, Little Wounded wanted to do the same thing to honor him.
