"My husband was a sleepwalker, and since he slept naked, he would go out to dance in the corn fields. I suffered  fearing that something bad would happen to him, or that he would walk naked to town and someone would see him. Even when I prayed for him I felt embarrassed with the saints because of his nakedness. That is why I asked for help to Santa Lucia, who has no eyes and hence could not see my husband.

Dewey Beard or Wasú Máza (“Iron Hail”, 1858–1955) was a Minneconjou Lakota who fought in the Battle of Little Bighorn as a teenager. Chief Iron Hail is often mistaken by historians for Chief Iron Tail, being Lakota contemporaries with similar sounding names. Most biographies incorrectly report that Chief Iron Tail fought in the Battle of the Little Bighorn and that his family was killed in 1890 at Wounded Knee, when in truth it was Chief Iron Hail who suffered the loss. by Vicki Quismundo
