Dakota Daughters: The Story of Wounded Knee

At the Norfolk Public Library  |  May 7, 2019  |  6:30

Sponsored by Elkhorn Valley Museum and the Norfolk Public Library.  Presented by the Dakota Daughters, Geraldine Goes In Center, Joyce Jefferson, and Lillian Witt, who examine the hopes, fears, beliefs and values of their Lakota, Afro-American and Euro-American fore-mothers in this living history performance.  The Dakota Daughter characters portrayed are fictional but they describe actual events in the west from 1865 to 1890, culminating in the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre with three conflicting views of Wounded Knee.

After the performance the audience is invited to participate in an open discussion about the conflicting historical accounts of events surrounding the massacre and the continuing impact of cultural differences on relationships today.  Free.
