    Do you know what happened at Wounded Knee South Dakota in 1891?

    I find it interesting that other races are always screaming foul if this or that is done to them but America's Native American's rarely say anything. I wonder how many people know what happened at Wounded Knee South Dakota in 1891. Do you know what members of the 7th Calvary did that day? I will be really interested in what people have to say.

    I am 'Other Race' and I would like to cry foul also!  However as a New Zealander, I am probably one who should not do so!  But I do... and I totally agree with crazyhorsesghost's point in asking this question. In fact, my 'Crying Foul' is but an echo of the question!
    Wounded Knee was a rout by one part of the 7th Calvary under Custer, over women, children and old people, solely driven by hatred and for the purpose of ego and humiliation! 
    People DO CARE my friend, though they may not exist in your immediate environment - they are of 'Other Race' and they are there and not clouded by those things that force (in shame) the need to bury those things perceived to be unworthy of history by those whose own history is deeply flawed.
    PLEASE Ask MORE Questions like this one.. and your support will grow, just as people of 'other races' will be less likely to judge... if you are!  Tell this world, this new place to roam freely, WHY.

    Just to add to wellness15's comment, some of the US soldiers accidentally shot one other while on the rampage. This atrocity is still taught and labeled as a "battle" in schools today.

    If I remember rightly, the US cavalry slaughtered a village of Native Americans.  All the warriors were away, leaving only women, children and the elderly, the women came outt and bared their breasts to show they were women and they held the children up so the troops could see them.  It was to no avail and the slaughter continued by the US troops (I wont give them the honour of naming them warriors).

    Yes, they slaughtered an innocent race that day. I read a book about this quite a few years back. It seems that there are a variety of stories.

    I've heard that the soldiers were moving the group of older men, women and children and forced the NA to give up their guns. The Na were afraid if they didn't have their own way to feed themselves they would starve. One NA said he wanted paid for his rifle if he had to give it up and a fight followed with the gun going off, giving the soldiers an excuse to slaughter every Native American that day.

    The other story I heard was Chief Big Foot and the Ghost Dance and how the soldiers were afraid the NA would get out of hand if they didn't squelch the idea of the Ghost Dance, which was giving the Native Americans their fighting spirit back.

    Then of course I heard the story about the one NA that was deaf and couldn't understand what the soldiers wanted.

    So what is the real truth?
