Timestream: Wounded Knee Massacre



Genocide Watch staff have published the twenty-eighth Timestream in a series of critical genocides in the world.


This Timestream covers the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre, which is often viewed as the climax in a centuries-long genocide by the United States against indigenous populations who had rightfully and lawfully lived on their land for thousands of years. On December 29, 1890, the 7th Cavalry of the United States Army murdered in cold blood 300 Lakota men, women, and children at Wounded Knee in modern-day South Dakota. The Wounded Knee Massacre has had a huge effect on the collective memory of Native Americans and their relationship with the United States government.
