Day 127: Pine Ridge, Wounded Knee, the Badlands

Today, Re-Member brought us to the Badlands, which was a meditative and sometimes difficult experience. We then went to Wounded Knee, where we listened to the story of the massacre at Wounded Knee, as told by a young Lakota man. It was heartbreaking. The genocide of indigeneous folks is real and recent. There are strong parallels from Pine Ridge to Gaza to Ferguson.
