I agree, for Banks and Means is was National not Local, it seems they were just using the folks in Wounded Knee.
I think this is one of those things that can be read a hundred different ways by a hundred different people. It sounds like your connection to the locals at that time is probably a pretty accurate representation of what actually happened, its interesting to get that angle.

I wish I could find the pictures, hell it's been 40 years. But there were VW vans with peace symbols painted all over them parked in Wounded Knee.

Sounds like a good video to download. No cable TV out here in [ 'herethereeverywhere'].

Amazing movie "Bury my Heart at Wounded knee".

Just watched this a few days ago. Interesting to find out none of it was filmed in Montana or the Dakotas at all! the credits said Canada for all of it.

Canada is a lot cheaper to film in, and it's not like there's a lot of difference between, say, Alberta and Montana at the border!

Yeah, but Wounded Knee is on the prairie in South Dakota. You gotta bring your own tree if you want shade.

Out of all the ranches I've worked for, I've gotta say that I've never worked with more loyal, or hard working cowboys in my life then I did down there. They'd get pissed when it got dark cause they didn't have their night horse.

In an interview conducted around Wounded Knee after the 1973 siege, a man named Matthew High Pine recounted that several days prior to February 27, 1973 he was at an Oglala Sioux Tribal Council meeting, at which Russell Means requested to bring his AIM group on the Pine ridge reservation.

High Pine told Means he could do so only if he promised that there would be no violence. Russell Means declared that there would be no violence at all. He was then told that he and his group could come in the reservation. (January 8, 1974 , Matthew High Pine interview).

Russell Means and his group of "renegades" (word used by Leo Wilcox, Tribal council member OST, on radio program, March 25, 1973) went in Wounded Knee armed, and began the systematic destruction of homes and property. The body of Leo Wilcox was found the following day on March 26, in his burned car destroyed by a firebomb. His death has been attributed to AIM.
