Today, February 27– 50 years later: Remembering the Wounded Knee occupation
Fifty years later, it’s hard to paint an adequate picture of the injustice, corruption, oppression, and chaos that led up to and pervaded the occupation of Wounded Knee, SD starting on February 27, 1973. Afterwards, as he dismissed misconduct charges against AIM leaders Russell Means and Dennis Banks, Federal Judge Fred Nichol famously said the FBI had “polluted the waters of justice.” We hear from people who were there and discuss what the event means a half century later with Dwain Camp (Ponca), warrior from Wounded Knee and elder; CraigCamp (Ponca), warrior from Wounded Knee and elder; Walter Littlemoon (Oglala Lakota and Northern Cheyenne), resident of the 1973 Wounded Knee occupation; and policy analyst Russ Diabo (Kahnawake Mohawk).
