Wounded Knee

On Dec 29, 1890, the army attacked the indians at wounded knee.  300 Indians were killed while only 30 soldiers were killed.  There are not any markers at the place where the attack took place.  Now local Indians set up their stands and sell their craft.  They also tell the story of the battle. 


the soldiers set up a big gun on top of this hill to fire upon the Indians.



Indian chiefs killed in the battle were buried here.


Only bathroom available at Wounded knee.  No door provided.
