Others are fiercely opposed to development, saying it would be disrespectful to the dead. The talk of development 'hasn't matured yet,' said Ivan Sorbel, executive director of the Pine Ridge Chamber of Commerce. That doesn't stop people from coming. On a recent afternoon, two carloads of visitors from Texas and Iowa stopped within a minute span to walk through the site, a National Historic Landmark.
After intense communication with the spirits, participants emerge from a steaming inipi, or purification sweat lodge.
The massacre is 'one of the greatest crimes in U. Right near the flag of truce a mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing, and that was especially a very Ladies wanting sex Cape coral sight.
But the couple's trip was unlikely to help the reservation much. They were staying at a hotel in Rapid City, about two hours northwest of the site. Brianne Hawk Wing, an Oglala Sioux tribal member, arrived with her nephew and Adult singles dating in Bakersfield Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women soon as she saw visitors.
The tribal and federal governments are the largest employers on the 2. The unemployment rate can be as high as 80 percent. Attracting investors is difficult because tribal members are often suspicious of outsiders. It's unclear how many tourists visit the reservation or the Wounded Knee site because no one keeps accurate records.
Still, many tribal members like Hawk Wing want the site to remain as is. No one has to pay for anything,' she said as she pointed out where her great-grandfather is buried. A museum commemorating the massacre was ransacked and its contents lost in Another museum dedicated to the massacre Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women thousands of people annually, but it's miles north of the reservation in Wall, S.
The Wall museum is not affiliated with the Oglala Sioux, although co-founder Lani Van Eck said the facility had the blessing of Wounded Knee residents when it opened in December Bodies of Sioux Indians being unceremoniously piled into a mass grave hacked into the frozen Dakota soil after the tragedy at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Forsyth b. However, Forsyth was convinced that the Indians did not turn over all their weapons, and he choose to ignore that order and sent groups of ten troopers into the camps in search of weapons.
In reality, it was this breakdown in the chain of command that lead to the massacre at Wounded Knee. If Forsyth had followed Miles order, the killings would not have taken place.
General Miles wrote that the women and children who tried to escape Women want nsa Kirtland Ohio hunted down and killed.
Miles put the death toll at 90 warriors and about women and children killed. He called the action of the Commanding Officer was "reprehensible.
He said that it was "worthy of the severest condemnation. A snow storm hit and their bodies froze. Then a mass grave was prepared.
Military records of the time show that 84 men, 44 women and 18 children of Big Foot's band of Minniconjou Sioux, were buried in that unmarked grave. That is a total of No one knows how accurate those records were. Seven more died in the make-shift hospital on the reservation after the burial and up to 30 were missing and never accounted for.
It is the records of the doctors that are the most telling. They note the types of wounds suffered by the women and children. In a December 31, photograph by George Trager of a Lakota Indian named Yellow Bird, who lays frozen on the bloodied ground of Wounded Knee, a rifle Woman looking casual sex Stoughton seen laying next to his twisted and tormented body.
His arms are frozen in a pose that would suggest that he fell face first on the ground. Yellow Bird was reported to have exhorted his fellow warriors to fight the bluecoats on that fateful morning of December 29, However, it looks like his corpse was set upon the bodies of other dead Lakota. There is even a light-colored blanket placed between him and the others so that his body would show up better in the photograph. The photo has been retouched to blur out his genitals which were left exposed.
The rifle was obviously placed in the photo by someone who wanted Yellow Bird to appear to be the aggressor. More than just a photographic war trophy, this photo was meant to be a propaganda tool. He could have been the one responsible for the set up of the dead, considering that many of the soldiers posed for him as well. The Congressional Medal of Honor is the highest military award for bravery that can be given to any individual in the United States of America.
The law that authorized the medal said that the President is authorized to present, in the name of the Congress, a Medal of Honor only to each person who, while an officer or enlisted man of the Army shall hereafter, in action involving actual conflict with an enemy, distinguish himself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.
The first Medals were issued in Pleasant, South Carolina formed by Congress in offers the following view of the Medal of Honor Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women their web page:.
Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor.
It soon became clear that there were Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women who were believed to have gone 'above and beyond' this call, and on December 21,the chairman of the Senate Naval Committee, Senator James W.
Grimes, introduced a Housewives looking nsa Oro grande California 92368 to promote the efficiency of the Navy.
Navy Secretary Gideon Wells was looking for a way to inspire sailors to improve their work. This bill was approved by President Abraham Lincoln which provided for the preparation of Medals of Honor to be awarded upon such petty officers, seamen, landsmen, and marines as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry in action and other seamen like qualities during the present war.
Thus the Medal of Honor was created. The massacre at Wounded Knee was awarded the highest distinction by Congress.
DuringCongress awarded the Medal of Honor to other veterans of the Wojnded at Wounded Knee that included the following:. A review of the medal winners cases raise some questions about why these medals still stand today. Corporal Paul H. Weinert, the gunner from Company E, 1st U.
Artillery, received a Medal of Honor. The Army's Medal of Honor Web page lists the citation as: With his gun less than three hundred yards away, his firing inflicted terrible damage, undoubtedly killing and wounding many women and children.
Perhaps that is the nature of war - to the victor goes the spoils.

It seems astonishing that Weinert was not wounded in the hail of fire from the besieged Indians. According to his own account the Indians in the ravine were firing furiously as tl worked his gun: The wheels of my gun were bored full of holes and our clothing was marked in several places. Hobday was a cook from Company A, whose gallantry "was noticed by several officers. First Sergeant Frederick Toy, Cavalry, was given a Medal for voluntarily bringing water to the wounded soldiers under fire at Wounded Knee.
Jerry Green, writes on the Internet: Frederick E. Toy, a twenty-six year veteran from Company G, was cited 'for bravery displayed while shooting lt Indians. It was changed on the final citation, after the original was rejected by the War Department. Captain Winfield S. Edgerly, his Souty officer, rewrote the recommendation stating Sergeant Toy did 'deliberately aim at and hit two Indians who had run into the ravine.
In Musician John Clancy, U. Artillery was awarded a Medal of Honor for twice voluntarily rescuing wounded comrades under fire of the enemy at Wounded Knee. Harry Hawthorne, Artillery, also received a Medal for distinguished conduct in battle with hostile Indians at Wounded Knee. In First LT. In First Lt. John Gresham, Cavalry, was awarded a Medal of Honor for voluntarily leading party into ravine to dislodge Sioux Indians concealed therein, and was wounded Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women the Naughty girls Rio Rancho New Mexico at Wounded Knee.
Of this Green writes: John C. Gresham was awarded the medal in March The recommendation was made by Capt. Charles A. Varnum, Wounfed commanding officer of Troop A, who gave no reason for the delay.
There is an unsigned, undated letter in Gresham's personnel file which states that no records could be found of Gresham's wounds. There is, however, a mention elsewhere rom during the fighting Gresham "received an abrasion Knre the nose from a passing bullet. Some officers questioned saw nothing to warrant special mention for Gresham. His citation reads for going "into a ravine and dislodging Indians.
In March were another letter cor submitted asking for the honorable mention of certain individuals. One was 2nd Lt. Harry L. Brevet considerations were turned over to Gors.
Edward M. Heyl of the Inspector General's office for investigation. He never recommended, nor were any of these officers accorded, a brevet promotion.

The caption reads: In Miles was named commander in chief of Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women army. He retired from the Army in with the rank of lieutenant general. But the story does not end there.
InLt. Nelson A. Miles was appointed president of the board of five retired generals that reviewed all of the Medal of Honors cases up to that time. Congress had passed an act to create the Medal of Honor Roll. They were to assure that the awards were warranted and reviewed all 2, of which were stricken from the record because they did not meet the definition of valor above and beyond the call of duty.
Many had been issued for reasons of re-enlistments and special honor guards. Ironically that law stated that only those who had been involved in "actual conflict with an enemy, distinguished by conspicuous gallantry or intrepidity, at risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty" would have the honor of being on that Honor Roll.
It is difficult to understand how the twenty Medals that were originally given for the massacre at Wounded Knee withstood this new review. By their own definition, the review commission should have rejected these along with the others. It was politics back then, as it is politics today, that allowed the twenty Wounded Knee Medals of Honor to pass muster and are still being honored today as they remain on the Congressional Medal of Honor List.
Apparently, upon hearing of their mission General Miles felt compelled to write to somdone Commissioner of Indian Affairs to tell his side of the story of Wounded Knee. I found a copy of this letter on the Internet but there was no reference as to where the original is located.
However, it contains some interesting items.

This image promoted more resentment against the Indians. Many reporters were on the scene of the massacre, some even participated in the actual killing.

The recommendation wante Looking for someone to talk to and see where it goes sex wanted fom Wounded Knee South Dakota women accompanied by a detailed recital of the circumstances, and by certificates of officers, or affidavits of Dzkota men, who were eye-witnesses of the act.
The testimony must. On April 27, Congress approved an act which provided for the creation of a "Medal of Honor Roll" upon which honorably discharged medal recipients who had earned the medal in combat and had attained the age hoes 65 years were to be recorded.
The act required a standard of excellence in order to be included in this exclusive commemoration.
Those requirements stated that the only ones to fr on the Honor Roll was those who met the definition of valor above and beyond the call of duty. To this day the wantes names of the "Wounded Knee heroes" continue to be listed. This is more unusual when you consider the fact that the images of the Find Hurley of the death of one million Armenians at the hands of the Turks was still fresh in the American mind.
The sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine and the loss of Americans lives caused a moral outrage in this country. Innocent civilians were killed in an unprovoked attack.

Scott stated that ironically, Indians were patriotic soldiers during World War I, considering that only a few years earlier they were fighting the U. The only precedence for striking names from the Medal of Honor Roll occurred in a Congressional Act.
This Act provided for the appointment of the Secretary of War of a board of five retired general officers for the purpose of investigating and reporting upon past awards or issue of the medal of honor by or through the War Department. Between October 16,and January 17,all of the 2, Medals of Honor which had been awarded up to that time were considered by the Board.
However the minutes of the review board were confidential and the little time spent on the actual reviews diminish the seriousness of the effort. On February 15,names were stricken from the list. Among those who lost their medal was William F. Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill, and Mary Walker, a Civil war surgeon and the only woman ever to receive the honor. Buffalo Bill had been given the Medal for his service as a scout with the Third Cavalry in Nebraska which had a skirmish with some Lakota who had stolen seven horses in Cody was considered ineligible for the Medal because he was a civilian.

He was also traveling with a troupe of Nude horny women in Pollock South Dakota in his Wild West Show.
His hired Indians were asked to swear allegiance to the federal government and were used as "role models" to visit with the Ghost Dancers and try to convince them that resistance against the whites was futile. After the killings at Wounded Knee, Cody sought permission from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to hire some of the known Ghost Dancers for his traveling troupe.
Ever the showman, Cody realized that these Indians would be a great drawing card. He reasoned that it would be important to remove these potential trouble makers from the reservation. Miles had the same idea, but for different reasons. He removed thirty Lakota Wsnted him when he returned to his headquarters in Chicago. He wanted to hold them at Fort Sheridan to prevent any further outbreaks.
Miles wanted Cody to hire the prisoners he held and take them to Europe. They were to be overseas nearly a year. Upon their return, Kicking Bear, the principle Lakota Ghost Dance disciple, and ten other "ringleaders" were detained and not allowed to go back to their somepne.

Wex, this was not heroism, it was nothing short of cold-blooded murder. The recommendations for the Medals Knse Honor for Wounded Knee passed through the Army chain of command.

When you consider that General Miles was also awarded a Medal of Honor in for gallantry in the Civil War Battle of Chancellorsville, it would appear the price for his silence was his own medal, awarded almost thirty years after the action.

More strangely, little if any, evidence exists of the review committee thinking, except that they decided to apply the standard of merit that was in place at the time the Medals were awarded. This left the Wounded Knee medals in tact. Miles never wrote about his thinking behind that decisions.
This leaves us with more suspicions than answers, especially when you consider the wojen behind some of the medals that were issued. While no formal investigation took place on the killing of Lakota as POW's public reaction to Cody's adventure was more complicated. Indian reformers objected strenuously to allowing Indians to perform their old dances in public. They wanted Indians to forget the old ways, become Christians and lead productive lives.
In a strange twist, the reformers, who were strangely silent about the massacre at Wounded Knee, blew a gasket over the show Indians.

He then called all the Indians together to discuss whether or not the whites ought to be expelled.

But from there to actually living with her and the leader in the tent of honor was nevertheless a leap. Naturally I felt a certain pride toward the other whites about being "promoted" to Rosemary's teepee.

Rosemary lay in the tent's only bed, chatting with me in the glow of the lamp, while I lay on the ground.

I have often run into similar situations, but this was some-thing very different, and to even think about sex in this situation was out of the question.
It was only two days after her husband's funeral - the husband whose child she lay with there against my stomach. I was shaken and shocked. All my romantic and revolutionary ideals fell with a crash. I have since been told that this behavior is not abnormal for a person who has just lost a husband or wife.
