about

Sitting Bull's great grandson, Ernie LaPointe, kindly agreed to allow me to record him reading from my debut poetry collection 'The Last Wolf of Scotland' (Red Hen, Los Angeles 2013/17) and discuss themes within the book relating to his ancestor. With a successful kickstarter campaign in late 2017, I was able to travel to South Dakota and meet Ernie and his wife, Sonja, who generously hosted me over three days. This record accompanies the poetry collection which can be purchased at www.pighog.co.uk/authors/MacGillivray.html and the forthcoming non-fiction publication from MIT/Strange Attractor. More information can be found at www.kirstennorrie.com. For those interested in the compelling message of Ernie LaPointe, a spiritual spokesperson of the Lakota People, a French film company are currently working on a documentary with him. His books, lectures and a fascinating biographical documentary tracking his experience as an orphan, a Vietnam veteran and the long, had road to becoming spiritual leader can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernie_Lapointe
