Lost City of Indians – Found!

Where is the great hidden Native American City with Flying Indians – with spears? I have formed several nations in the West.


My Saved Oakland History

EXTRA! After posting the following I called to cancel my flight and they want $250 dollars. So, I am going!

The owner of ‘Oakland History’ did not get all my history expunged. I saved some of it. I will make sure he, or, she – lives in infamy! Below is the part where I talk about my ex-friend Paul Drake who played Mick in the movie ‘Sudden Impact’. After I caught him in bed with my lover, whom I was living with, I ended up in the Golden West Bar. Ten Oakland Cops showed up after I told Paul to come outside and get a ass-whoopen. It was a showdown.

Above is Buffalo Bill with Sitting Bull of the Hunkpapa Sioux. I was good friends with his kindred here in Eugene. I have seen photographs that no one has seen. I begged Joy to allow me to help her scan them.

I am not going to Oakland, because I realized I was toying with too much death, playing with bad and good ghosts. I have gone there anyway, in spirit, and by using My Vision. The chance I might die – is high! I want to finish the Gideon Computer, that became real when I read the report of Hollowhornbear’s involvement in the gruesome murder of Herbert Pierruci, the bartender at the Gold West Bar on September 3, 1984. Twenty-three days later, my daughter was born. Heather came into my life sixteen years later. I did not know I had a daughter. She and her mother were Paul’s neighbor on Broadway.

I talked to Chris last night about the Golden West murder, and the western murals that appeared in my Science Fiction book, the Gideon Computer. My hero, Berkley Bill Bolagard, would hold court in a booth in this downtown Oakland Bar. When he was younger, Bill owned a white Thunderbird like the one Barry Zorthian owned. When he went to visit his old friend Dexter Lewis in Los Angeles, he put him in front of a camera selling Ford trucks because he was dressed like Buffalo Bill. He was instructed to let out a yell!

“Yeeehaw!” Ride em cowboy!”

I just found this old photograph! It’s coming back to me. The Golden West Bar was patronized by employees of the Oakland Tribune. I talked to several of them. The Tribune was located in…………..THE GOLDEN WEST HOTEL……..that may have been located nearby. I am trying to locate it. Were the murals inside the Golden West Bar connected to Wild Bill Cody’s Wild West Show, and the hotel! This is astounding! The Tribune is no more! The ghosts of the men and women who printed a daily newspaper are calling me. I may show up October 1st for the anniversary of one of Bill’s last shows – which I am now going to organize! Too many ghosts for one man to handle, and remain in his body! Maybe I am the embodiment of Buffalo Bill?

In 1915, when Joseph Knowland, a former U.S. congressman, acquired the Oakland Tribune, the newspaper was located at Eighth and Franklin streets in the old Golden West Hotel. In 1918, the Breuner Furniture Company vacated its home at Thirteenth and Franklin. Knowland envisioned the vacated showroom and an adjacent warehouse as the site of a first-class newspaper facility. He began to implement this vision with the acquisition of the Breuner’s property and the move of the Tribune there.



Sitting Bull (Lakota: Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake [tˣaˈtˣə̃ka ˈi.jɔtakɛ] in Standard Lakota Orthography,[2] also nicknamed Húŋkešni [ˈhʊ̃kɛʃni] or “Slow”;[3] c. 1831 – December 15, 1890) was a Hunkpapa Lakota holy man who led his people during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him, at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement.[4]

Before the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Sitting Bull had a vision in which he saw many soldiers, “as thick as grasshoppers,” falling upside down into the Lakota camp, which his people took as a foreshadowing of a major victory in which a large number of soldiers would be killed.[5] About three weeks later, the confederated Lakota tribes with the Northern Cheyenne defeated the 7th Cavalry under Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer on June 25, 1876, annihilating Custer’s battalion and seeming to bear out Sitting Bull’s prophetic vision. Sitting Bull’s leadership inspired his people to a major victory. Months after their victory at the battle, Sitting Bull and his group left the United States for Wood Mountain, North-West Territories (now Saskatchewan), where he remained until 1881, at which time he and most of his band returned to US territory and surrendered to U.S. forces. A small remnant of his band under Waŋblí Ǧi decided to stay at Wood Mountain.

After working as a performer with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, Sitting Bull returned to the Standing Rock Agency in South Dakota. Because of fears that he would use his influence to support the Ghost Dance movement, Indian Service agent James McLaughlin at Fort Yates ordered his arrest. During an ensuing struggle between Sitting Bull’s followers and the agency police, Sitting Bull was shot in the side and head by Standing Rock policemen Lieutenant Bull Head (Tatankapah, Lakota: Tȟatȟáŋka Pȟá) and Red Tomahawk (Marcelus Chankpidutah, Lakota: Čhaŋȟpí Dúta) after the police were fired upon by Sitting Bull’s supporters. His body was taken to nearby Fort Yates for burial. In 1953, his Lakota family exhumed what were believed to be his remains, reburying them near Mobridge, South Dakota, near his birthplace.
