Dedicated to the memory of Wilmer Mesteth who helped further the cause of Lakota Revitalization.

Wilmer “Stampede” Mesteth

Wilmer was a true Lakota hero – a tireless worker and servant of his people; a truly humble and noble person and friend. Mesteth will be remembered as the spiritual leader of the tribe, and as a man who was as generous with his time and spiritual teachings as he was spiritually gifted. Mesteth served his people in every possible way. Those who are mourning his passing are remembering his guidance, direction and leadership.
