2oo indigenous people, led by members of the American Indian Movement, occupied the South Dakota reservation town of Wounded Knee, site of the infamous massacre of 300 indigenous people by the U.S. 7th Cavalry in 1890. Demanding that the U.S. Senate launch an investigation of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Pine Ridge, and all Sioux reservations in South Dakota, and that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hold hearings on the scores of Indian treaties broken by the U.S. government. The Wounded Knee occupation lasted for a total of 70 days, during which two indigenous men were shot to death by Federal agents. White House officials promised to investigate their complaints instead leader were arrested. Violence continued on the Pine Ridge community throughout the 1970s. The U.S. Government took no steps to honor broken treaties. The indigenous people are still fighting to get back the sacred Black Hills.
