PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What happened at Wounded Knee? Textbooks used to call it a battle but this PowerPoint lecture explains why historians now see it as a massacre. It asks the students to define the terms "battle" and "massacre" then gives an unbiased account of what happened at Wounded Knee and why. The presentation is very concise, clear and effective, giving the basic narrative and minimum necessary background for students to get a general understanding of this tragic event in our history. [Students may need some additional historical context of the period to fully appreciate the lecture, such as knowing the name of Sitting Bull, knowing about the Lakota (Sioux) people, and being familiar with the reservation system and the Ghost Dance movement.]
