Hi there Kram
I went to wounded Knee 2 years ago. It has always fascinated me as well.What really strikes you about the place is it's very poorly signed and
difficult to find.It's almost if the americans don't want you to go there.
There is a plaque up that has graffiti over it and we were the only tourists there.
Up a hill is a graveyard type monument, very understated.
I found it a very spiritual place, I admit it I did cry.
A small indian stall, selling jewellry,is near the parkin place.I bought as much as I could afford.
They live in poverty,they have very little.It 's in the middle of nowhere and we travelled many miles to reach it.
