The original Survivors and their Descendants intensely believe in respecting the spiritual sanctity of our sacred grounds.
When visiting our sacred site, the Descendants humbly request:
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel to address them to our official Gate Keeper.
We would like to introduce the official Gate Keeper for the Descendants Society:
Michael "Mike" Yellow Horse.
Mike is the fourth generation Descendant of Toka Kokipapi and Hazel Eyes, both Survivors of the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890 and resides in the Wounded Knee community.
We are ever so appreciative to Mike for his living our Lakota values of humility, respect and compassion when it comes to the protection of our relatives' burial place.
Mike is dedicated to the guardianship of the mass grave and surrounding cemetery from being disrespected by the local panhandlers, vendors, and respectfully assists travelers who come to pay homage at our sacred site from being solicited.
Mike kindly does all this on a volunteer basis, so please extend your gratitude as well when you meet Mike at our sacred site.
