Gunfire + Chants Mark Wounded Knee Anniversary

WOUNDED KNEE, S.D. (AP) – Gun fire erupted through chants as hundreds of American Indian Movement activists gathered to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Wounded Knee occupation on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

In 1973, about 200 members of the American Indian Movement and their supporters huddled in houses, some with guns, to protest alleged corruption within the tribal government. On Wednesday, those activists and others gathered to remember the fatal 71-day standoff.

It was the same site where 80 years before soldiers from the 7th Cavalry slaughtered an estimated 300 Native Americans.

During the occupation, two Native Americans were killed, an activist went missing and a federal agent was wounded.

But some members of the Oglala Sioux Tribe say little has changed for them since the end of the standoff.
