|Dawes White Bird had a daughter named Dulce, who married a Cheyenne
named Bushyhead. They had a son named Jerome, who just died two years ago
and was an artist and well known. He was married to Ruby [Bushyhead] who
worked 39 years for the BIA in Cheyenne and Arapaho heirships and has the
most extensive research on Cheyennes and Arapahoes from the heirships and
works real close with me on the descendants families. Dulce was in the
nursing home here in Norman with my mother back in 1994 and she was very
up in years and would walk real slow to my mothers room and talk Cheyenne
with her. One day my mother went to the hospital for tests and Dulce walked
to her room and saw she was gone. She asked the nurses where that young
Cheyenne girl went and she did not say bye to her. We thought that was
cute of her as she made a daily trek to see my mother."
