I am proud to have known Oliver Red Cloud and his oldest son and my good friend, Verdell Red Cloud. Thank you, Oliver, for letting me go with you to pow wows and sharing your family sweat lodge with me when I was a student at School of Mines in Rapid City in 1970-72. You called me Norwegian Pete then, and gave me some unique and fond memories of the reservation and the Lakotas. I was lucky to see the you again a few times these last few years, I will never forget that. Rest in Peace.

I used to work in the Pine Ridge Hospital lab and Chief Redcloud would come in about once a week for his bloodwork.I enjoyed talking with him on his visits to us and i think he enjoyed talking to me too. I have just heard of his passing and wanted to say he was really nice too me and will be missed.
RIP May Gods peace be with his loved ones.
So sorry to hear of your loss,will pray for his Family.
My deepest sympathy goes out to your family. May the God of Comfort bring you comfort through these troubling times.1COR.1:3,4

Please accept my condolences. The great Spirit originally designed the earth to be a paradise of peace, not what we see today. Chief Joseph said: “We were taught to believe that the Great Spirit sees and hears everything, and that he never forgets.” The Creator, who has seen our pain, has promised to end all death and suffering.
