I had an amazing experience today and feel honored to know more about the culture and history here. We started our day by going to a culture museum where we had the chance to take an audio tour that guided us through pictures, paintings, and maps that portrayed a lot of their history. However, the most touching thing for me today was visiting the site of Wounded Knee and also the Wounded Knee Cemetery. The stories told show a completely different side to the things that I have learned in textbooks and bring it to a completely more personal level. A young man at the cemetery took the time to share his family’s history and he gave us the story of his ancestors and all of the many things that they went through during Wounded Knee and the other battles. I loved being immersed in this new culture and can’t wait to learn even more on this trip.
