It is peaceful here, in the charnel quiet of a new day. Snow blankets the hills, now as then. The sun is shining. Listen: from the valley to the west, faintly, the lowing of cattle, the barking of dogs. Even closer: the echo of what happened here. Beside Chankpe Opi Wakpala--a creek called Wounded Knee--more than 200 people died 100 years ago, many of them women and children. The sacred Ghost Dance did not save them. Whether what happened was a battle or massacre will perhaps be debated forever.
