The battle of Wounded Knee in 1890 was actually a massacre of a group of Native American Lakota who were carrying a flag of peace. Students will discover in this book the events leading up to and after that horrible event. They'll read eyewitness accounts of those events as well as descriptions of the shooting that erupted by some who were there at Wounded Knee. Also included is information about the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968 and the Siege at Wounded Knee in 1973. Review questions appear throughout the book to reinforce what students have studied. Also included are suggestions for further study, using the internet and multiple intelligence activities. A complete answer key is provided. This book will help students better understand the tragic history of Native Americans and hopefully make them want to investigate further to find out more about not only the Lakota, but other tribes as well.
