ALEX WHITE PLUME is Oglala Lakota and one of the founders of the Sitanka Wokiksuye (Wounded Knee Bigfoot Memorial Ride) (South Dakota) started in 1986. The nation needed a Wiping of the Tears ceremony after the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. The ride began because of the way our people were living; they needed change and a way that brought awareness to what happened to Bigfoot and his people at Wounded Knee. “MOTHER EARTH NEEDS CULTURE.” – Alex WP

To see some of Alex s work go to (www.oweakuinternational.org).

Between 1986-1990, the ride was a Wiping of the Tears ceremony for the Lakota nation. There were 19 riders on the very first ride in 1986 from Bridger, SD to Wounded Knee, SD. The ride was called the Future Generation Ride after 1990, when the Wiping of the Tears ceremony ended.

For the week of Dec. 26, 2013 – January 2, 2014
