Where Truth & History Meet
Wounded Knee... Three Women, Three Stories, Three Cultures
Allow yourself to be taken back 132 years, to 1890, to the Wounded Knee Massacre. See the story of the three cultures unfold as you remember & reflect.
“Dakota Daughters,” Geraldine Goes In Center, Lillian Witt, and Joyce Jefferson, bring you a play about the events culminating in the massacre at Wounded Knee Creek in 1890. They present this South Dakota Humanities Council sponsored play to demonstrate a historical interpretation of the events 132 years ago. They play imaginary characters but talk about historic documents, such as the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie, sing songs, recite poetry and read newspapers that were composed or written in the time portrayed. Mentioned are Sitting Bull, Big Foot, Short Bull, General Custer, Colonel Forsyth, and D. H. Gallagher who were actual participants of the events.
