Honor Wounded Knee massacre with tribal holiday
It will be 123 years since the unspeakable slaughter of 300 innocent Lakota men, women and children at the hands of the soldiers of the United States Seventh Cavalry at Wounded Knee.
The anniversary of this day, December 29, should forever be marked by a Day of Commemoration and Remembrance. I was at the gravesite a couple of weeks prior to December 29, 1990 in order to do a cover story for USA Today. It was a bitter cold day, so cold that the cameraman for USA Today had to climb into his car and warm the camera every few minutes because it kept freezing up on him.
