FLASHBACK - 1973: Siege at Wounded Knee

A short history of the 71-day uprising of Native Americans at Wounded Knee. Armed American Indians occupied the territory, which they legally owned, with several demands, including an investigation into the 371 treaties signed between the Native Nations and the Federal Government, all of which had been broken by the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The siege at Wounded Knee occurred just two years before the killing of the two FBI agents for which Peltier is in prison. When asked who on the reservation might have had motive to kill Federal agents, the consensus was "everyone."
