Wounded Knee remembered after 40 years

Wounded Knee remembered after 40 years
As people gathered on the hill at Wounded Knee in South Dakota, the sound of drumming and strong voices rose up from the road below.

Several hundred people of all tribal nations made their way up the hill, carrying American Indian Movement flags, staffs and other tributes. Their singing grew louder as the drumming grew more powerful. The cold wind cut fiercely through the crowd but as the group grew larger, the chill lost momentum.

Everyone that came that afternoon to Wounded Knee on Feb. 27, 2013, was there to remember what took place there 40 years ago. A time when the American Indian Movement occupied a small, white church, no longer standing but memories remain.

The remembrance served as a gathering of diverse people with a similar history, a multitude of opinions and unbeatable spirt. The above video gives more information, footage of events and interviews with some of the people who were there.
