Anger Over Plan to Sell Site of Wounded Knee Massacre

posted on April 4, 2013

John Eligon of The New York Times examines the controversy over the site of Wounded Knee massacre, which “is raising the moral, legal and social quandaries that have burdened generations of American Indians.” Eligon writes, “And now the massacre site, which passed into non-Indian hands generations ago, is up for sale, once again dragging Wounded Knee to the center of the Indian people’s bitter struggle against perceived injustice—as well as sowing rifts within the tribe over whether it would be proper, should the tribe get the land, to develop it in a way that brings some money to the destitute region.”
