#OtD 27 Feb 1973 armed American Indian activists occupied Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in protest at corruption and appalling treatment of Native Americans. Despite state violence and killings they held out for 71 days and galvanised huge support https://libcom.org/history/1973-siege-at-wounded-knee
@workingclasshistory I remember doing a "history fair" project on this in elementary school in 5th grade after seeing a magazine spread on it long before that had made an impression. I made a diorama and everything. I was disqualified from the fair with the criticism that it wasn't history but an isolated terrorist event that I was glorifying. I haven't thought about it in a long time. Thank you
