A recollection of the Commemoration

"One evening I went over to the Calico Hall where they were supposed to have a meeting and powwow. They talked about how they could not do anything, so then they decided to call on the American Indian Movement people for boy (Buddy) was in it. Anyway, we made packs for them, whatever they could carry - food and clothes for my son...I never had given it a thought that someday this would happen here again and my son was going to be next, lying in the Wounded Knee Cemetary. Before this happened he like to joke. They were sitting around and he said, 'If anything happens to me,' he said, 'bury me here in Wounded Knee.' And he laughed. Later on he said...'That's where I want to be, fighting for my people. I don't want to go out of here, our of Wounded Knee. I want to be buried right here.'"

--the late Agnes Lamont, recounts her only son Buddys' death at
Wounded Knee 1973, in conflict with Federal Forces.
