American Indian Chief David Beautiful Bald Eagle Jr. dies at 97 on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation

“I was born in a tepee at Cherry Creek, the first Indian village there ever was,” Bald Eagle told the Journal in 2013. “I know we can’t go back there, back to where we were. But we can tell the young ones how it was and they can remember, and they can bring it back. They can return.”
