    Very difficult to watch. The injustice and indignity never seem to end.

    After the Custer bison roundup, I drove to Pine Ridge and Wounded Knee to pay my quiet respects, and stood near where the image below was taken.

    Also, in college, I was a reporter for the college paper, and I remember how I almost got to interview either Dennis Banks or Russell Means (I forgot which one, it was almost 30 years ago), who was in town for the day to give a talk, but for whatever reason it fell through. At the time, I'd never heard of either.
