Life in Paradise
Sometime after Wounded Knee little Pedro and I moved in with Leonard Crow Dog on his father’s place. I married Leonard in the Indian way, with a blanket wrapped around us, holding on to the Pipe, while being “cedared” and fanned off with an eagle feather. This was not considered a legal marriage in a white priest’s sense but it was good enough for us.
