Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The powerful story of the ongoing struggle of indigenous Americans in 20th-century United States and of its shift in focus from traditional battlefield and massacre sites to federal courtrooms and the halls of Congress. Mario Gonzalez has served as attorney for the Sioux Nation and Elizabeth Cook-Lynn is a Native American writer. Together their two voices will draw the reader into the continuing struggle of the Sioux people to achieve justice.

Synopsis:

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.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [413]-416) and index.
