LODGE GRASS - Rashawnna "Shi-Shi" He Does It, of Lodge Grass, went to be with the Lord on March 23, 2009, at the St. Vincent Hospital in Billings. Her Indian name, BÃ-awakusse Kussiikaash "Looks toward the Spring Time" was given to her by Angela Russell, her clan aunt. Shi was born on Oct.7, 1997, to Shannon Howe and Robert "Sargie" He Does It. Shi was surrounded by her family and friends, when she passed from her long battle with leukemia. She belongs to the Big Lodge clan and a child of the Greasy Mouth, also a member of the Our Lady of Loretto Catholic Church in Lodge Grass and the Baptist Church in Wyola. She is a descendant of Chief Pretty Eagle and Spotted Horse. She currently attended Lodge Grass Elementary as a fourth grade student and also attended Sandstone Elementary in Billings for a short time as third grader. She enjoyed being a mother to all her cousins and siblings. Shi loved to sing, color, read the bible, ride horses, play basketball, baby-sit, cook and loved to fight with her siblings and cousins, one of her trademarks. Rashawnna Red Star carried her namesake. She received her first communion while she was at St. Vincent Hospital by Father Jim Antoine.
Her sister, Chezrae He Does It; maternal grandmother, Marilyn Stewart; paternal grandparents, Rosalie (Benny) Grey Bull-Hill and Clinton He Does It; and her great-grandparents, Francis and Cerise Hogan-Stewart, Mary Passes-Grey Bull and Raymond Howe Sr., preceded Shi in death.
