Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Wounded Knee Massacre, then pay attention...

The Wounded Knee Massacre is often glossed over in textbooks, talking about the event in a generalized manner. But such a generalized representation undermines the real impact and significance of the events that happened on that fateful day, making it one of the most tragic events in Native American history.

To establish the facts of what occurred, most of the details taken into account in this audiobook while analyzing and discussing the events of the Wounded Knee Massacre are taken from the records of the American participants of the war, as well as from military records of the investigation into what happened and the subsequent trial of one of the participants of the massacre. 

In this audiobook, we aim to provide the listener with a more in-depth look at the factors and major players in the Wounded Knee Massacre, as well as the significance of its aftermath.

In The Wounded Knee Massacre: A Captivating Guide to the Battle of Wounded Knee and Its Impact on the Native Americans After the Final Clash Between Federal Troops and the Sioux, you will discover chapters such as:

  • A Short Introduction of the Lakota Tribe and the Ghost Dance Movement
  • A Brief Overview of the Relationship between the US Government and the Native American Population of America

A great writer who explained the facts of what it meant and means and continues to expect to be an Indian in the country now known as America.

An audible I will ready again...

As a Native American & lawyer who practices Indian law, I enjoyed the author's research into a history that is largely overlooked by the general public and the US educational system. Well done!

Captivating book

My heart grieves for what was done to them and is loaded with shame for the White race in America, of which I am a part. There is no return for what we did, but to do everything we can to preserve Native American history in any way we can.

I highly recommend it.

This audible shows us vital looks of our moral and mental roots, allowing us to better recognize those areas in which the vision of liberty has been gloriously received today and those areas in which, sad to say, it has grown quite dark indeed.

I would now recommend this

The prayer of deception and well-intentioned disasters has provided a way to clean and social recognition and even support. In my very short presentation to Indian culture, Treuer's account sounds true. And his double requirements as anthropologist and author both come through, from exhaustive notes to flowing prose.

Very informative

The Wounded Knee Massacre provides an excellent overview of the author's goal to provide more meaning and a forward-looking view of the Native American story. Audible previous fiction works have provided excellent practice for this important work

Exactly what I wanted

Very educational, easy to understand, great research. It is really exciting to follow the rise of a bee generation of natives albeit the oppression and pillage of their homelands.

Bravo!!!

It is a comprehensive work but personal as well. It is also holding up a bright mirror on Americans on both sides of the color line.

Five Stars

It's easy to read and seems to cover all key aspects of the conflict. If you're looking for a deep dive into Native American history and this siege, go elsewhere, but this book doesn't pretend to be that. It's short, it's readable and full of good information presented in a way that is very digestible. Well worth the money.

This book is what it is.

This book is what it is. It's not a masterpiece of Indian culture, it's a very short narrative around the events of 1973's Wounded Knee occupation, specifically focused on a conference between participants years later.

Well Researched Book

The focus was about the wounded knee occupation, some of the trials, and mostly about a historical conference held at Augustana College. The author didn't take sides, and after reading it, there are several sides (not just two) and I was left with more questions than answers.

Very well researched.

Very well researched. A neutral approach. Blame is put where it belongs. This is a tough subject and it is handled in the best way I have seen.
