Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee


This image was inspired by the book, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. I wanted to capture the tragedgy of the American Indians and honor the victims of a culture that was lost to the greed and violence of my people.

From Wikipedia:
The Wounded Knee Massacre, previously known as The Battle at Wounded Knee Creek, was the last major armed conflict between the Oglala Lakota and the United States, subsequently described as a massacre by General Nelson A. Miles in a letter to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
