First annual Tuweni Tsa Obsni “They Never Died” Run a success

Share

Remembering those who survived the Wounded Knee Massacre has taken many shapes in recent history, but some remembering the survivors then and now, are taking to the highways, running back to the Takini area on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation during the day of mourning, December 29, 2012.

Cuwe-Ob-Mani Mesteth followed the entire route the ancestors traveled by first participating in this year’s Big Foot Ride and then doing the Tuweni Tsa Obsni run back to Takini. Mesteth lives in rural Swift Bird, S.D., and will be attending OLC-Cheyenne River campus this spring. Photo courtesy of Wiyaka Chasing Hawk.
