"Over 150 Indians, mostly women and children were killed by the US Government. This was the worst massacre in US History, not Orlando as the news media would have you to believe."

 Massacre At Wounded Knee, 1890

 On the morning of December 29, 1890, the Sioux chief Big Foot and some 350 of his followers camped on the banks of Wounded Knee creek. Surrounding their camp was a force of U.S. troops charged with the responsibility of arresting Big Foot and disarming his warriors. The scene was tense. 

Trouble had been brewing for months. 

The once proud Sioux found their free-roaming life destroyed, the buffalo gone, themselves confined to reservations dependent on Indian Agents for their existence. In a desperate attempt to return to the days of their glory, many sought salvation in a new mysticism preached by a Paiute shaman called Wovoka. Emissaries from Map of Battle Areathe Sioux in South Dakota traveled to Nevada to hear his words. Wovoka called himself the Messiah and prophesied that the dead would soon join the living in a world in which the Indians could live in the old way surrounded by plentiful game. 

A tidal wave of new soil would cover the earth, bury the whites, and restore the prairie. To hasten the event, the Indians were to dance the Ghost Dance. Many dancers wore brightly colored shirts emblazoned with images of eagles and buffaloes. These "Ghost Shirts" they believed would protect them from the bluecoats' bullets. During the fall of 1890, the Ghost Dance spread through the Sioux villages of the Dakota reservations, revitalizing the Indians and bringing fear to the whites. A desperate Indian Agent at Pine Ridge wired his superiors in Washington, "Indians are dancing in the snow and are wild and crazy....We need protection and we need it now. The leaders should be arrested and confined at some military post until the matter is quieted, and this should be done now." The order went out to arrest Chief Sitting Bull at the Standing Rock Reservation. Sitting Bull was killed in the attempt on December 15. 

Chief Big Foot was next on the list.

  1. But they don't count. Remember also that it was your Government which did the killing, and that's OK.

  2. Don't forget Sand Creek, as well.

    Mostly women and children.

    1. From what I understand and if true, they could have arrested him when he went for his morning exercise, so it only makes sense that this was per-mediated murder.

  4. I' am sure it was premeditated as he had purchased the guns
    not very long prior to the massacre. He had to do some
    practicing with the AK15 someplace. Gun range?
    Have not heard anything about the wife; just the ex wife.

  5. A couple of people at the slaughter scene said the bullets
    were 5-6 inches long and one bullet was run-thru a man's
    calf, sticking out. Reading Investment Watchdog, AR15's
    take .223's which are not this big.
