Before leaving Wounded Knee, here's one more take on the 1890 story -- from country singer Johnny Cash. He recorded this song during a visit to South Dakota shortly after the 1973 American Indian Movement siege at Pine Ridge. "Bigfoot," whom Cash refers to, was another name for Sioux Chief Spotted Elk who led the Indians at Wounded Knee that day in 1890 and was one of the first killed in the encounter. I've included the full lyrics below. Enjoy.
