Memorial Funds established by the Episcopal Diocese of North Dakota in Dcn. Terry’s memory include one to assist in paying for the family’s travel and expenses to the Seminary to collect his belongings and to assist in funeral expenses.
The second fund is a lasting memorial for Dcn. Terry at Red Hail’s Camp. The cemetery where he will be buried in is at St. Gabriel’s at Red Hail’s Camp. Red Hail was Terry’s maternal great-great grandfather. He fought in the Battle of Greasy Grass Creek, commonly known as the Battle of the Little Big Horn (1876).
When Theodore Roosevelt was President of the United States, Red Hail donated 40 acres of land so that his people would have a “House of God” among them. Red Hail is the name of that Warrior. Now, years later, a a camp and conference center has since been established to provide summer camps, youth ministry, and training opportunities for the North Dakota Council on Indian Ministries (NDCIM) and for the Diocese. Since 1996, the facility has grown and is now able to house more than 70 people and is the hub of Standing Rock’s summer youth ministry.
