Pages Through the Ages: BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE

Sun, November 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Discuss Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee with Bruce McGuirk and other history buffs at Pages Through the Ages. Read the classic native American history by Dee Brown or watch the film version.

Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was really won.

Copies of the book are available at the Westport Library. This meeting will be virtual, so please register.
