Oglala Sioux Leader Gerald One Feather Dies

August 24, 2014, 1:37 PM

OGLALA, SD -

Gerald One Feather, the legendary Oglala Sioux leader and former tribal president, has died at 76.

Longtime friend Tom Katus says One Feather died Thursday at a Rapid City hospital. Katus said One Feather had a massive stroke while on dialysis in Pine Ridge before being taken to the hospital.

One Feather was born in 1938 and later elected Oglala Lakota Tribal President in 1970, making him the youngest to hold that position in tribal history.

One Feather enrolled at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell in 1956. That fall, he was one of the drivers who took Democrat George McGovern around the state during his run for Congress.

One Feather was an advocate for education, helping start the Oglala Lakota College and the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.
