December 29th of this year marks the 131st memorial and remembrance of the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890 where the United States Calvary followed several ghost dancers and community members to Wounded Knee, opened-fired, and killed over 300 indigenous men, women and children. More than 80 later, the struggle continued at Wounded Knee from February 27th, 1973 to May 8th, 1973 when over 200 members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) and their supporters occupied Wounded Knee at Pine Ridge, Lakota Nation (South Dakota) in a sixty-seven day standoff which resulted in a negotiated settlement between both sides. AIM and their supporters came to the assistance of traditionalist who were struggling against "elected" chairman Richard "Dickie" Wilson, whose administration along with support of the United States government, was rife with corruption, nepotism, and violence. Join us for a one-hour special with exclusive sound from Pacifica's archives on the initial coverage of the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee and exclusive sound from "'A Tattoo On My Heart: The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973."
