The Wounded Knee Massacre, occurred December 29, 1890 at Wounded Knee Creek on Pine Ridge Oglala Sioux Reservation, South Dakota. Among the 300 Sioux killed were many women and children. On February 28, 1973, members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seized the village of Wounded Knee to protest injustices against their tribes, treaty violations, and current abuses and repression against their people. They challenged federal authorities to repeat the 1890 massacre. During the standoff, two members of AIM were killed, one FBI agent was paralyzed, and many Native Americans were wounded.
