Riders at Wounded Knee on Dec. 28, 2013

By Pte San Win

The riders are moving swiftly. I just love our sacred horse nation. They are so beautiful and powerful. Our babies are so strong and sacred for handling this cold cold wind. Just think relatives our young boys used to go out and do their first hunt on horse back by about 12 years old. Sometimes in the midst of winter. 
Today it is a good day to be LAKOTA and know that we are going to always live. 

Mitakuyapi tonight the riders are camped at Wounded Knee District School. We will be here having speakers and songs throughout the evening. Tomorrow we will be riding to Pine Ridge in remembrance of our relatives who were taken there and left to die at 3 Moccasin Park. We will be riding to Pine Ridge and meeting at Billy Mills Hall to eat. We have relatives who rode all the way from Standing Rock. They are beautiful and strong mitakuyapi. 

Update Riders arrive at Wounded Knee
On December 29, 1890, the Seventh Cavalry massacred Miniconjou Lakota leader Big Foot and 150 of his people at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. In the days leading up to the massacre, Big Foot and his followers rode 300 miles, hoping to find refuge at Pine Ridge.
