Lakota Activist Alex White Plume lives with his family and extended family on a 2,000-acre ranch near Wounded Knee Creek, SD. We will be visiting with Alex about the morning of December 29, 1890, Wound Knee Massacre and Big Foot Ride.  “The whole Sioux Nation was wounded at that last terrible massacre, and we’ve been suffering ever since. It’s true we have our own ways of healing ourselves from the genocidal wound, but there is just so much historical trauma, so much pain, so much death,” White Plume said, and he would know. It is time for us to just listen, thank you Alex White Plume for your willingness to share with us on KAOS Radio, this Sunday, Dec 27th, 2015 at 4pm. Tune in http://www.kaosradio.org

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

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
