Description

On the night of Feb. 27, 1973, beat-up cars carrying dozens of angry young men sped into Wounded Knee village in Southwestern South Dakota, where 83 years earlier, Chief Big Foot and 150 Lakota Sioux were massacred by the U.S. 7th Calvary. 

Members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) and the local Native American Lakota had come to occupy the symbolic site on the Pine Ridge Reservation to protest their grievances. Shortly thereafter, police and Federal agents cordoned off the small town which would soon became the stage of a violent standoff. The AIM and local Lakota would hold out against the firepower of the U.S. Government for 71 days. By the time the occupiers left, the village had been destroyed, two were dead, an activist had gone missing, and a U.S. Marshal left paralyzed. 

In Wounded Knee 1973: Still Bleeding, award-winning Washington D.C.-based journalist Stew Magnuson explores the events and personalities of this still unresolved struggle between Native Americans and the Federal Government.
