Warrior Is
By: Harley L. Zephier and Robin L. Zephier

Mato Niyanpi, Saved By Bear, is called upon by his relatives and Creator to perform an act of commitment and courage in the Greasy Grass Battle at the Little Bighorn in Montana on June 25, 1876. He has a face-to-face confrontation with Custer on Last Stand Hill. Mato Niyanpi is the proud Mnincoju Lakota warrior who killed Lt. Col. George A. Custer. In the taking of his human presence from Unci Maka, Mato Niyanpi became, and continues to be, the Spirit Keeper of Custer. Creator called this union for our future together as human beings, living in peace, unity, tolerance, and love.

This story is based on the life of Mato Niyanpi, and his true personal experiences told as family oral history passed down through the generations of his lineal descendants. WARRIOR IS offers an indigenous perspective of the spiritual journey of this human being and the life of other Lakota during the changing times. It encompasses information never revealed publicly to anyone outside of the immediate family for the past 141 years.

WARRIOR IS narrates the vents from creation times to weeks after Greasy Grass Battle, the summer of 1876. Mato Niyanpi's great-grandsons Harley L. Zephier and Robin L. Zephier, Minicoju Lakota tribal members, tell the story of their great-grandfather. The practice and beliefs of this proven civilization are portrayed and described in every facet of the peoples' existence. The life purpose of co-existence and respect for all the families of Unci Maka, Grandmother Earth, is the gift and intent of the Creator.
