The other day, I watched on HBO Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and was quite appalled and broken-hearted by the savage massacre committed by the soldiers, politicians, and most shockingly, the Christian citizens against the American Indian! Not even the children were spared!
Not only were the Indians exposed to all types of diseases, but were denied proper health medications when they contracted the diseases.
I've got some well read and intelligent LJ Friends, so this isn't NEW news for them as it is for me, since I always seem to be the last to know important stuff!
My questions are, why such cruelty, and in what manner have the American Indians been compensated today, for having had their land stolen from them? Am I wrong for feeling such antagonism for the exploitation of the American Indian by the settlers? Is it true what I saw in that movie? Please give me your thoughts.
