Hello my name is jose carbajal my lakota name is Wahan canka maza. I am oglala lakota and just came across this and was thinking to tasunka witko it doesn't matter because he was lakota they were all his relatives and his people!! He loved them all dearly as he showed throughout his life!!! He would be very disappointed in people fighting over his genealogy (probably for monetary gain)!!! What I have been told of him by my grandparents is the man I believe is real!!

My grandmother Brings White is a first cousin of Crazy Horse, being related on her father's side as well as her mother's side. Her and her parents are registered as Oglalas here at Pine Ridge. But I heard talk about the Hohwoju side.
Greetings Hawkwhisper, glad to see you here. Any stories or insight about the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Crazy Horse or others that have been passed down to you would be most welcome and an enhancement to our discussions.
Crazy Horse never married Nellie He sent her back. He did have one daughter with Black Buffalo Woman that died on Pine Ridge in the 1900s. Little Hawk was his only brother. Lakota family ties are complicated,formal adoptions are as binding as blood relationship. Crazy Horse called Hump uncle even though he wasn't his blood relative. The name Crazy Horse was used by other men after Tashunka's death adding to the confusion.

I am attempting to piece this geneolgy together since my mother and grandmother, who had knowledge of Crazy Horse's family passed on in 1958, leaving me with scant knowledge of the same. But suffice to say there are other relative other than the ones talked about here. Not tipping my buddie's hand here here but Edward Star (Star Comes Out shouold be interviewed on the part of No Water since he is a descendant and is very knowledgeable about his family's history.
