Crazy Horse not subject of photo, research proves 1872 photo really shows Stabber, who attended Washington peace talks
Crazy Horse never posed for a photograph. At least not the one Tim Giago owns.
Researchers from a PBS show who study historical mysteries have determined that a photograph believed to be the only one of the legendary Lakota leader is in fact that of another man, Giago said.
No loud cries of “Cut” or “Action” were heard and all of the direction from Lardner was positive and polite. The crew filmed scenes interviewing Giago and then asked him to change clothes.
They then staged a second scene, supposedly much later, in which they met with a second time to tell him the man in the photo was not Crazy Horse.
The crew also filmed scenes at Crazy Horse Memorial, where they met with Sprague and Ziolkowski to film scenes for the show.
The program airs Mondays during the summer on PBS. The piece on Giago’s photo will air as a 15-minute segment of a show this summer, according to a “History Detectives” staffer.
