“Near the flag of truce, a mother was shot down with her infant.  The child, not knowing that its mother was dead, was still nursing, and that especially was a very sad sight.  The women, as they were fleeing with their babies, were killed together, shot right through, and the women who were very heavy with child were also killed.”  -American Horse, Oglala Lakota (Sioux), testimony at council held by delegations of Sioux with Commissioner of Indian Affairs on the Wounded Knee massacre, February 11, 1891, Washington D.C.
