“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.
