Description

Wounded Knee, 1973, A Personal Account, is written by Stanley Lyman, who was the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) superintendent at the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1973. His view of what happened when the American Indian Movement (AIM) activists occupied the village of Wounded Knee is coloured by his postion of employment. He has critical words for all parties involved including the Tribal Council, the Justice Department, the BIA, FBI, and AIM. Floyd A. O'Neil and Susan McKay edited Wounded Knee 1973 with the help of the author's widow, June K Lyman.
