Thanks for the posts Deuce. Some great info on this thread.
I have not read that much on the American Indians - the last time I did, I was interested in the AIM movement of the 1960's and 70's. At the time, I read 'Where White Men Fear to Tread' by Russell Means, 'Lakota Woman' by Mary Crow Dog and a little bit of 'Ojibwa warrior' by Dennis Banks.
Here's an interesting video about the Wounded Knee incident in 1973.
