Mary Ellen Moore-Richard, formerly known as Mary Crow Dog and Mary Brave Bird, of He Dog, SD, passed away on Thursday, February 14, 2013, at Crystal Lake, NV at age 58.

A grand-niece of Dick Fool Bull, she was a longtime member of the Native American Church of Rosebud.

Mary Crow Dog was an inspiring Brulé Lakota writer and activist who was a member of the American Indian Movement during the 1970's and participated in some of their most publicized events, including the Wounded Knee Incident when she was 20 years old.

In 1971, she was inspired by a talk by Leonard Crow Dog and at age 18 joined the American Indian Movement. She participated in such historical events as the 1972 Trail of Broken Treaties and subsequent occupation of the BIA headquarters in Washington, DC. She was also part of the 1973 Occupation of Wounded Knee.

She lived with her youngest children on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota. Her 1990 memoir Lakota Woman won an American Book Award in 1991 and was adapted as a made-for-TV-movie in 1994.
