    40th Anniversary of Wounded Knee 1973 (Feb 27 - May 5). The Wounded Knee incident in 1973 saw 200 Oglala Lakota and followers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seize and occupy the town of Wounded Knee. The activists chose the site of the 1890 massacre for its symbolic value. The Wounded Knee Massacre was on Dec 29 1890, the last battle of the American Indian Wars - between 150 and 300 men, women and children of the Lakota Sioux were killed that day (or died from their wounds soon after).

    Twisted Footnote to Wounded Knee: On December 29, 1890, in a ravine near Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota, the U.S. Army, supported by American Indian mercenaries, slaughtered approximately 300 Lakota men, women and children—75% of Big Foot's Lakota community. They had already surrendered when they were brought to Wounded Knee by the army. The U.S. troops turned their weapons—including 4 rapid-fire Hotchkiss guns—against clearly defeated warriors and innocent women, children and old men.
