This ledger is a tribute to the spirit of my great grandfather, Strikes Enemy. He was taken from his homeland of Elbowoods North Dakota
to attend the US Indian School in Carlisle Pennsylvania (1901 -1904), where his name was changed to Clair Everett. After graduation,
Strikes Enemy moved back to his native country and became a farmer. He married Fanny Sitting Bear, the daughter of the chief of the Arikara's, Sitting Bear.
