#TDIH Occupation of Wounded Knee - 27 February 1973

The Wounded Knee Incident began on February 27, 1973, when approximately 200 Oglala Lakota and followers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seized and occupied the town of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to protest the United States government's failure to fulfill treaties with Indian people and demand the reopening of treaty negotiations.
