Scope and Contents

The Wounded Knee Survivors Association Collection is comprised of three series: Correspondence, Documents and Printed Materials.  All materials contained in this collection are photocopies, some of which are poor in quality.  The source of the originals is unknown. 

The Correspondence series contains two sets of letters.  The 1890-1891 set contains letters from the United States Officers involved with the massacre at Wounded Knee and their accounts of the battle.  The second set of correspondence concerns efforts to erect a monument or memorial to the victims of the 1890 massacre.

The Documents series contains various documents concerning the Oglala Sioux Tribe.  Included are Articles of Incorporation of the Wounded Knee Survivors Association and Report of Investigation into the 1890 Battle at Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota.

The Printed Materials series contains articles about the Wounded Knee Massacre and the 1973 Occupation of Wounded Knee.
