The Christmas season is a happy time for many. But for a Oceti Sakowin (the Great Sioux Nation) it holds painful memories. Sitting Bull was assassinated on Dec 15. The #Dakota38 were hanged Dec 26 in the largest execution in US history & the #WoundedKneeMassacre was Dec 29.
November isn’t any better. The #WashitaMassacre was on Nov 27 and the #SandCreekMassacre was Nov 29 & we will never forget the brutality that took place on Backwater Bridge just a few days before Thanksgiving. Our slaughter is tied to colonial holidays.
Lest we forget Columbus Day, a day set aside to honor a genocidal murderer who lopped off Indigenous limbs & gave Indigenous little girls to his men to be used as sex slaves.🙄
