      Hmm Never Mentioned: Masaacre at Wounded Knee, 1890, the Largest and Deadliest School Massacre in US History. http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/knee.htm?utm_content=buffera4667&utm_medium=social&utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_campaign=buffer

      The Wounded Knee Massacre was the last major armed conflict of the Indian wars. After the death of Sitting Bull, a band of Sioux led by Big Foot fled into the badlands but was captured by the 7th Cavalry on December 28, 1890. The next day, as the Sioux were being disarmed, a scuffle broke out and a US officer was wounded. US troops then opened fire, killing about 200 men, women, and children in mere minutes. Who seized and occupied Wounded Knee for 71 days in 1973?

    In December 1890 the U.S. Seventh Cavalry massacred a band of Lakota men, women, and children at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Miraculously, after a four-day blizzard, an infant was found alive under the frozen body of her dead mother. Kidnapped and kept from her remaining tribal family, her story is tragic. After death she was finally returned and buried with the family she lost at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.

    Sitting Bull, refused to order his people to stop Ghost Dancing, and in consequence was arrested and killed, an act that led two weeks later to the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee, (12/29/1890) where 153 Sioux Indians, mostly women and children, were needlessly slaughtered by the US Army. But the Indian spirit was not slaughtered with them. The Ghost Dance continues to this day, and to some large extent the hopes of many Native Americans remain pinned to the prophecy that spawned it.

    Gall. 1840-1894. He was a great warrior and became a war chief in his twenties. Leading the Lakota in their long war against the US, he served with Sitting Bull during several battles, including the famous Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. A modern reassessment of the Battle of Little Bighorn has given Gall greater credit for several crucial tactical decisions that contributed to the Sioux and Cheyenne's defeat of the five companies of cavalry led by Custer of the 7th Cavalry.

    Sioux Chief Sitting Bull by Hastiin Tilden, via Flickr In 1888 Sitting Bull rejected a new offer to sell Sioux land. The U.S. government became increasingly frustrated by his refusal to negotiate a deal and orders were given for his arrest. Deaths: Indian Police: 6 killed and 1 wounded. Sitting Bull's followers: 7 killed, including his 17 year old son, Crow Foot, and his adopted brother Jumping Bull, and 3 wounded.

    When I was a boy, the Sioux owned the world. The sun rose and set in their land; they sent ten thousand men into battle. Where are the warriors today? Who slew them? Where are our lands? Who owns them? --Sitting Bull

    Yellow Eyes (Ishtazi or Istha Zha Zha), Lakota Nation, photo by Frank Fiske 1906. Yellow Eyes was an informant for Sitting Bull and was with him at the Battle of Little Big Horn. She and her family escaped with him to Canada and returned with him when he surrendered in 1881. She went on to Fort Peck with her son and husband and the other warriors.
