Dances with Wolves actor Chief David Bald Eagle dies at 97

Native American Chief David Bald Eagle, who appeared in the Oscar-winning 1990 film Dances With Wolves, died aged 97. The grandson of Chief White Bull, who fought in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876, he appeared in more than 40 films.  Born in a tepee in 1919 on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation,  he served in the US Army during World War Two, fought in the landings at Anzio, and won the silver star.  After being severely wounded by German fire while parachuting into Normandy during D-Day, Bald Eagle pursued a music career as a drummer.  He trained a range of stars including John Wayne in horse and gun handling, and served as Errol Flynn's stunt double.   Bald Eagle's dedication to the Lakota people saw him elected as the first Chief of the United Native Nations in 2001.  A real American icon.  RIP

Irish Curse

May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine blind illegitimate children chase you so far over the hills of Damnation that the Lord himself can't find you with a telescope.
