This narrative museum tells the story of a small band of Lakota families who became the focus of the last major military operation of the U.S. army in its centuries-long effort to subdue the Native American tribes.
Exhibits and photographs provide a vivid picture of events surrounding the Wounded Knee Massacre. The museum presents a carefully researched, thoroughly documented history of the flight of Big Foot’s band of Minneconjou Lakota through the wintry South Dakota landscape, their capture by the 7th Cavalry, and the horrors of the morning of December 29, 1890, when up to 300 Lakota men, women, and children died in a hail of bullets from rifles and Hotchkiss guns.
It allows us to bring everything together in one place. Here we can present the words and pictures that tell the story. It combines good elements of both books and films. There is text to describe the events around the Massacre; there are graphics and photographs that go beyond words. Best of all, people can follow what happened by going at their own pace through the exhibits.
