Surviving Wounded Knee

The Lakotas and the Politics of Memory

David W. Grua

  • A fluid and even-handed study of the memory and history of a key Indian battle in American history
  • A revisionist account of the most documented Indian War in US history
  • Argues that Wounded Knee did not end the Indian Wars but simply transferred the venue of conflict from the killing field to the field of memory
