Rocky Lamar Elk Eagle (Maza Hoksila) was born August 2, 1977 at Eagle Butte, SD to Roland & Doris (Hawk Eagle) Elk Eagle. His Lakota name was given to him by his great-great grandfather, Thomas Elk Eagle. He spent his childhood years in Iron Lightning, SD. After receiving his GED, at the age of 18, he joined the Job Corps at Trapper Creek, MT. He later returned home to the Cheyenne River and begin working at the CRST Housing Authority. He met and married Chelsea White Eyes and to this union were born two beautiful boys, Royale George Elk Eagle and Rowin Benet’ Elk Eagle. During this time he and his young family resided in Dupree, SD. Rocky was a very kind, outspoken, open-minded and friendly person, and was always quick to help those in need. When you would see “Rock” he always had something funny to say, and enjoyed teasing no matter who you was or are. He had numerous family and friends who he hung out with on the daily. If you didn’t see Rock strolling in Dupree, then you would have definitely seen him strolling in Eagle Butte. He always managed to get from place to place even when he had nothing but his own two feet getting him there. We wouldn’t know how he would do it, but that was Rock for you, always figuring out a way to get things done. Rocky had a smile that would light up a room and if you were having a bad day, his laugh would always cheer you up. He tried to be the best father, son, uncle, brother anyone could have asked for. Rocky will be dearly missed by everyone. And what we will always remember about him is “Rocky being Rocky!” Rocky is survived by his sons, Royale and Rowin Elk Eagle.
