Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee
An analysis of the historical writing of Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
This paper describes the historical genocide and displacement of the Native Americans through Dee Brown’s book “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”. It traces the history of the Dakotas and Sioux Tribe during and after the conquest of the West by the American military.
“Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is a fully documented account of the genocide and displacement by the United States government and military of an entire race of people, human beings, natives of the land that spanned from sea to shining sea. This unthinkable inhumane act was done in the name of Manifest Destiny, a name Congress gave to this movement. Brown documents battles and defeats of the Navaho, Nez Perces, Cheyenne, Apache, Utes, the Sioux and other tribes against a relentless and dishonorable government.”
