Tuesday, February 25 - Wounded Knee: 30 Years of Aftermath:
The occupation of Wounded Knee in February 1973 by members of the American Indian Movement vaulted many of its members into the national spotlight, and consequently, they used the notoriety to launch successful personal careers in music, books, movies, on the speaking circuit, and to start their own organizations. But what about the people who had to continue living in this tiny village in South Dakota? Were they unwilling occupants and do they deserve reparation for the damages they suffered? And do those who profited from Wounded Knee II have a responsibility to give back to the community? Guests include lifelong residents of Wounded Knee.
