The Books


My grandfather Wilbur A. Riegert, who wrote this wonderful book, passed away before he saw this work published. He passed the rights to my mother, Jean M. Fritze, and together she and I represent his book.

Although we are Ojibwa from the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota, Wilbur had cultivated a greater affinity for our brothers and sisters of the Lakota. He spent his life collecting artifacts, stories, images much of which had been housed in the museum at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, the most memorable home of my childhood.

In this book Wilbur shares the story of his journey to understand the power of the Sacred Calf Pipe and the wisdom of the White Buffalo Maiden who gifted this remarkable pipe to the People.

I am a Sioux Indian, by Wilbur A Riegert, illustrated by Vincent Hunts HorseThis was the first book grandfather wrote. He commissioned Vincent Hunts Horse, a full-blood Oglala Sioux, to do the illustrations. The book was intended for distribution in the Wounded Knee Indian Museum at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.

 It’s a small book, only 24 pages, but it illustrates the “beautiful history of the Sioux Indian and his Sacred Calf Pipe.”

You’ll find an excerpt from the book HERE, which may also be downloaded for your own private use. It is a poem written by grandfather, “I am an Indian” with the symbols relative to the story told in the book, illustrated by Mr. Hunts Horse.

We hope you enjoy the excerpt, and “I am a Sioux Indian”.
