A Tattoo on my Heart: The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973 (Charles Abourezk and Brett Lawlor, 2004)

Film Screening will be hosted by Bill Means

A Tattoo on My Heart tells the dramatic and emotional story of the siege of Wounded Knee in 1973 in the words of those men and women who were there. “On February 27, 1973 traditional and AIM leaders chose another location to make a stand–the site of the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Cold, hungry, and armed only with hunting rifles, fake guns, and one AK-47, they held out for 71 days against the US government. Over 500,000 rounds were exchanged between federal officers and Indians during the siege. Two Indians were killed, and several other wounded.”
