Discovered this petition on the book of faces this morning:
We petition the Obama administration to:
Rescind 20 Medals of Honor awarded to soldiers of the U.S. Army 7th Cavalry in 1890 at Wounded Knee.
Rescind 20 Medals of Honor awarded to soldiers of the U.S. Army 7th Cavalry who participated in the slaughter of 300 or so Lakota Sioux, mostly unarmed women and children (approximately 200) at Wounded Knee on December, 29 1890.
Require all federal agencies and arms to refer to the Wounded Knee Massacre as a “Massacre” and not a “Battle or Battlefield.”
Help us rewrite history and forge a better way forward. We do not remember these tragedies to hurt, we remember to heal. We are facing the holocaust head strong, we are coming through it. We are lifting our heads and reclaiming our dignity.
