Birth certificate[edit]

The main article would be improved if somebody went and got a copy of his birth certificate, digitized it, and posted it here for everybody to see.

Before he died, did Jim Pepper have any next of kin? Has anybody stepped forward claiming to be his heir? 06:55, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

His father's first name was Gilbert, and his grandfather's first name was Ralph, if that helps any. Ralph is generally believed to have been the inspiring source to Jim's most famous song, Witchi Tai To. Ralph was a member of the Kaw indian tribe, and actually performed live with Jim on stage, at least on occasion. Many tribes have had, and keep or maintain birth records if they are recognized by the Federal Government. 04:47, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Cancer of the pancreas[edit]

Way back in 1992, I remember reading Jim Pepper's obituary in The Oregonian Newspaper, and it appears he'd died of cancer of the pancreas. Can someone verify this? 04:53, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Wedding Band[edit]

I had the extreme pleasure of having Jim (and Hamid Drake) put together an impromtu wedding band for our Wedding party back in Sept of 1984 in Evanston , Illinios. I'll search thru the dusty old photo's and see if I can find a photo.--Buster7 (talk) 23:28, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

“Witchi Tai To” lyrics by Jim Pepper, 1968[edit]

“Witchi Tai To” lyrics by Jim Pepper, 1968, Lovetruth Music/BMI:
What a spirit spring is bringing round my head
Makes me feel glad that I’m not dead
Witchi Tai Tai, kimarah
Whoa Ron-nee Ka
Whoa Ron-nee Ka
Hey-ney, hey-ney, no-wah
Witchi Tai Tai, kimarah
Whoa Ron-nee Ka
Whoa Ron-nee Ka
Hey-ney, hey-ney, no-wah
Everything Is Everything sings:
Water spirit feelings
Springin’ round my head
Makes me feel glad
That I’m not dead
Brewer & Shipley sing:
What a spirit spring
Is bringing round my head
Makes me feel glad
That I’m not dead
