About this Event

"My name is Myron Pourier , I’m a Native American from the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, U.S.A. I’m a fourth generation descendant of my great-great grandfather Black Elk from the book Black Elk Speaks authored by John Neihardt

I promote and provide speaking engagements on cultural diversity and understanding for all walks of life, as told through the book Black Elk Speaks interpreted by my great grandfather Ben Black Elk the of Black Elk, the co-author of the Black Elk Speaks.

On September 2014 myself and an elderly Lakota spiritual leader named Basil Brave Heart began a peaceful campaign to change the name of Harney Peak to Black Elk Peak the very peak where my great great grandfather Black Elk vision occurred as a 9 year old in 1869. On August 11, 2016 the U.S. Federal board of geographic names officially changed the peak name to Black Elk Peak to honour my grandfather vision of cultural diversity and understanding for all walks of life.

I operate two organizations one is Black Elk Charitable Foundation, which I am CEO, promoting cultural bridges for all humanity and the other organization is Black Elk Legacy which is designed to promote the funding efforts of full feature film and accounts of my great

Several additional organizations I’m involved in are, the John G. Neihardt Foundation located in Bancroft Nebraska, U.S.A.

As of today our grandfather Black Elk is in the canonization process awaiting approval by the Pope Francis."
