Wounded Knee 1973: Still Bleeding
The American Indian Movement, the FBI, and Their Fight to Bury the Sins of the Past
The tiny village of Wounded Knee, on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the southwestern corner of South Dakota, makes an unlikely emblem for the tragedy of the American Indian. But it was here in 1890 at nearby Wounded Knee Creek that the Lakota Sioux were massacred in a final stand against the U.S. Seventh Cavalry. And it was here in 1973 that the American Indian Movement chose to demonstrate their grievances by occupying the village in a protest against the U.S. government that lasted seventy-one days, involved assorted mayhem, resulted in a controversial trial, and stoked anger and resentment that continues to this day. On the fortieth anniversary of the 1973 occupation, Stew Magnuson explores the events and personalities of this struggle between Native Americans and the federal government. It remains unresolved.
