Funeral services are scheduled here Friday for Annie Mad Plume Wall, 95, whose lifetime spanned the end of the Plains Indian traditional era. One of her granddaughters, Rosalyn LaPier, called her death the end of an era. "She was someone who spanned from the buffalo days (because of who raised her and what she learned) to her text-messaging her great-great-grandchildren," LaPier said.
