5/8/09: Wounded Knee

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Friday, we're profiling a powerful documentary by the filmmaker Stanley Nelson. It's the story of the stand-off at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1973. More than 200 Indian activists occupied the reservation and kept the federal government at bay for 71 days. The occupation was a desperate act for native people to regain their dignity and get the world's attention. The film is called "Wounded Knee." (Rebroadcast)

The film will be shown on PBS stations this Monday May 11. It's the final installment of the American Experience series We Shall Remain. It can be seen on KUED Channel 7 in Salt Lake City at 8:00 p.m.
