Apples all, yes. The famous 1877 photograph is definitely the coronation portrait of Crazy Horse and not his brother, there is just a sort of Discordian conspiracy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordianism that it is a picture of the brother of the first Sioux king, but it clearly is Crazy Horse himself on his coronation day. However, you seem to have confused the historic Queen Wakiyan with more recent events in the Sioux Nation. There is an effort to remove all reference to Queen Wakiyan from the historic record, on the part of an extremely corrupt Tribal Council of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, who not only do not want any female in power, but who want to remove all reference to Wakiyan whom they seem to fear. To date (unless they have removed even these few remaining references) the only traces you will still find of Queen Wakiyan you will find at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Ridge_Indian_Reservation if you scroll down under the subject heading "Economy", at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Sioux_Reservation in the paragraph that begins "The controversial photograph", and at http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_Horse in the last paragraph, unless even these few remaining traces of her have been obliterated. In fact, it is a pretty good bet that, if you were to contact the men on the Tribal Council, that they would (to a man) deny even the existence of the historic Queen Wakiyan, even as they voted nine to five against having a female serve the tribe as president on June 29th, 2006 which is probably what you have confused with the story of Queen Wakiyan. However, one would hope that they would be at least honest enough men to give you accurate information about the Apples.
