The anniversary of the Wounded Knee Occupation

It was a cold February 27th, 1973 when about 200 Oglala Lakota Sioux and members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) occupied the village of Wounded Knee, South Dakota. In protest of a long history of violated treaties and demanding treaties signed by the U.S. government live up to the terms of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty.

Wounded Knee was a great victory for the Oglala Sioux as well as all other Indian Nations. For a short period of time in 1973, they were a free people once more and today is the occupation’s 40th anniversary.
