John Potter: Tribute to a Blackfeet friend

MONDAY, JULY 14, 2003

"I first met Mr. Gladstone not long after moving to Billings in the early '80s. He was traveling with his son, singer/songwriter/storyteller Jack Gladstone, who had a performance in town that day.

I remember thinking of him then, "now HERE is a man who knows the dance of life."

As we parted that day, he smiled and said, "We'll see ya later."

In the nearly 20 years since then, I came to know Wally as a gifted storyteller, a warrior, a gentlemen and a friend."
