Help mend the Sacred Hoop that was broken at Cankpe Opi (Wounded
Knee). There were 18 MEDALS
OF DIS-HONOR awarded to members of the 7th Calvary (Custers old outfit)
for the massacre of 350 innocent men, women, and little children at Cankpe
Opi, in 1890.
The Medal of Honor, is the highest award of the military,
for uncommon valor and bravery in battle with an armed enemy, NOT FOR A
MASSACRE of unarmed people who had surrendered and were under a white
flag of truce. There can be no healing until these medals are recalled.
As long as they are still being honored by the government, there is the
shame and disgrace of it, for all of us to bear.
There was a grievous wrong committed back in
1890, but there is even a more grievous wrong being committed today by
honoring the soldiers that committed this "cruel and unjustifiable massacre",
in the words of their own commanding officer, General Nelson A. Miles.
