Surveying both recent and historical events, Gonzalez and Cook-Lynn address critical issues of cultural bias and collective memory. Their observations expose not only the seemingly unbridgeable gap between white and Native cultures but also impassioned dialogue among various tribes affected by the Wounded Knee Massacre.
Heartbreaking and inspiring by turns, The Politics of Hallowed Ground reveals the bitter and ongoing struggle of a Native people to recover its history and its sacred lands -- and to achieve justice once and for all.
