WOUNDED KNEE 1890
The Massacre at Wounded Knee took place on December 29, 1890 in South Dakota.
At least 300 Sioux Indians were killed by United States troops, many women and children. Some were chased for over two miles, before being massacred by the troops.
In 1973, the "Siege of Wounded Knee" was perpetrated against Native Americans who, led by AIM and traditional tribal members, dared to express the sovereignity of THEIR land.
