The Politics of Hallowed Ground: Wounded Knee and the Struggle for Indian Sovereignty
This riveting account of hope, anger, and the pursuit of honor centers around the efforts, beginning in 1985, of the Wounded Knee Survivor's Associations to obtain legal redress for the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Interweaving entries from the diary of Oglala attorney Mario Gonzalez and historical commentary by Santee/Yankton writer Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, The Politics of Hallowed Ground traces the Survivors' Association's struggle to secure from the U.S. government a formal apology and recognition of the massacre site as a National American Monument.
Surveying both recent and historical events, Gonzalez and Cook-Lynn address critical issues of cultural bias and collective memory. Their observations expose not only the seemingly unbridgeable gap between white and Native cultures but also impassioned dialogue among various tribes affected by the Wounded Knee Massacre.
Heartbreaking and inspiring by turns, The Politics of Hallowed Ground reveals the bitter and ongoing struggle of a Native people to recover its history and its sacred lands -- and to achieve justice once and for all.

A must read for all Sioux Indians who wish to better understand the centuries long struggle for justice in the taking of the Black Hills and millions of acres of land from the Sioux. Excellent reading for anyone who wants a better understanding of the issues surrounding the Wounded Knee Massacre.
Review: The Politics of Hallowed Ground: Wounded Knee and the Struggle for Indian SovereigntyUser Review - Steven Salaita - Goodreads
Worth a look. It chronicles the unsuccessful effort of Lakota activists and their allies to get a permanent memorial built at Wounded Knee. The full asininity of bureaucratic bullshit is on display. Read full review
