Human history has been marked with violence in many forms: crime, hatred, racism, genocide and war. Unfortunately, the most vulnerable members of our global community are often the victims. Indigenous peoples in North America and other parts of the world have suffered greatly at the hands of invading oppressors. The 125th Year Memorial of the Massacre at Wounded Knee honors the more than 250, and possibly as many as 300 or more Native American men, women and children that were killed by U.S. soldiers on 29 December 1890. It also asks all people to remember the cruel injustices that have occurred throughout history and embrace a journey of peace and healing.
The Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee Global Ceremony will be preceded by The Big Foot Memorial Ride. This eight day trek will involve tribal members of the Lakota who will be joined by people from around the globe as they retrace the journey of Chief Spotted Elk (Big Foot) on horseback and on foot. This arduous journey will take place in the days before the anniversary of the Wounded Knee Massacre on December 29th. Each participant on the ride needs almost $300 to support their ride.
As part of the 125th Year Memorial, theHealing Hearts at Wounded Knee Global Ceremony will take place at the conclusion of the ride at noonon 29th December. Its sponsors would like to invite participants from around the worldto join them in this important event. This ceremony is meant to honor all who have ever died in massacre.
