Crazy Horse Photo

Our contributor found a photograph along with a note in the Lakota language dated 1904. The note claims, "This is a photograph of Crazy Horse." Does our contributor have the Holy Grail of the Wild West: a photo of the Lakota warrior who defeated General Custer? Host Elyse Luray puts this photo in context with other works by the same photographer at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.
