  • Wounded Knee veteran takes exception with segment V of We Shall Remain

    Dear Editor,

    There is PLENTY OF BULL in the up-coming Segment V on Wounded Knee in the We Shall Remain series by PBS.

    The Wounded Knee segment is arguably the most massaged documentary in history, and far from being one of the best ever made. I know this because I was there, at Wounded Knee. At the age of 19, I backpacked weapons and supplies into the village with my AIM brothers. I remember it was near Easter, because that’s when our leader, Dennis Banks, ordered us to “take care” of a young white guy, suspected of being an informant. We knew what that meant. We strung him up on a cross in a mock crucifixion, and beat him.
