Devil's Lake, Devil's Slide, etc.. when, to my knowledge, the only thing he ever created was mischief. I have always felt that the name 'Devils Tower' fell far short in describing the wonderful, awe inspiring creation that it is. The only name I think less of is 'Grey Horned Butte/Bluff. Does that convey the majesty and beauty of this particular monument? Why can't a nafiae be found that truly connotes the wonder and magniflcents of this formation, and, one incidentally, that might give some credit to its real creator, God? Let's remember that our western heritage is built upon solid Christian values. Were been distressed to read in the Letters column that some have observed that the Native American encampment was left in a less than perfect condition. *real and I have been at their camp by the Belle Fourche many times, "and we did not notice any of the "garbage and debris" that some have mentioned. During the ceremonies, the camp is primarily occupied by the elderly, the children, and the cooks, who are mostly white women. I think the problem may lie in the fact that a white man from California is the designated person to stay behind and clean up the camp. We have also gone to the ceremony site after everyone has left, and ityou had not witnessed the ceremonies, you would never know anyone had been there. We will mention the matter to Charlotte Black Elk, who would be equally distressed if things were left in less than perfect condition. I do know that they usually have four 'Little Out- houses on the Prairie' of the Porta Potty var/ety, that the location of the campfire is changed yearly, and that the Park Service supervises them quite closely. There is a great amount of self monitoring, as well as directions given to one another, and particularly the children, in the form of'The Park Service won't like that....Don't do thaU" There is also some confusion about what actually occurs during the time of the encampment. It is not a powwow. The ceremonies, which are sacred, occur at the Summer Solstice. I can tell you that we have observed many sacred and inexplicable occurrences during the time of the ceremonies that can only be explained by the presence of the Great Spirit. or God. The Native Americans believe the Black Hills are a sacred place, and Mate, Tepee (Devils Tower} is one of the most sacred. Many of us ordinarily white people feel that same reverence and sacredness, and I guess that is why I have always been uncomfortable with the name of Devils Tower. It seems incumbent that we give our genealogical credentials before we are allowed to voice an opinion on matters pertaining to Wyoming and Crook County. While I have lived in Crook County a scant seventeen years, I am a third generation Wyomingite. Our family now has five generations living in various Wyoming communities. I have lived in six Wyoming communities, and I have a deep and abiding love for all of Wyoming. Of course, Orval's credential are better than nine, since he is half Hunkpapa Sioux... 0 always say he is a Hunk-of-Papa), and he was born and raised here. I would prefer a name for the Tower that would reflect the sacredness of this area, and connote the splendor of our Creator's creations. Shirley Meier Dear Editor, Salt Lake City and the Western Board of Geographic Names meeting was very Interesting. Presentations were made by the National Park Service by Superinten- dent Dab Liggett and George San Mlguel. Maps were prepared by the University of Wyoming. These maps were very informative. Johnson Holyrock from the Pine Ridge and Steve Brady from Lame Deer were present to speak on the panel for the American Indian in reference to the name change. Jerry Knapp of the Black Hills Multiple Use and myself spoke on the many reasons that the people of Crook County and the State of WY feel that the name should conthnue to be Devils Towqr. This was at the information stage and no proposal was made to change the name, nor to name the butte as a cultural site. The people were very receptive to both sides and several stopped me on the way out with more information for us. Jack Studley from the state office was present and will keep us informed of any future meetings. Representatives and Senator for the State are becoming very vocal and will definitely be Informed as tLme moved on with the whole process.
