Bury My Heart... Wounded Knee. That was the site of the 1890 massacre of the Oglala Sioux by the US cavalry. As the news is full of talk about whether Canadian First Nations will blockade highways and rail lines as part of a national day of action on June 29, I'm reading about the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, the site of the Wounded Knee atrocity. The New York Times article has a picture of a Station of the Cross in the Holy Rosary Catholic Church on the reserve - the Romans are represented as American cavalrymen.
