Description

The Ghost Dance, a spiritual dance of the Lakota Sioux in the late 1800's, becomes their hope-and their demise. Their ancestors were to rise from the dead, reclaim their lands and restore it to its natural state, as it was prior to the intrusion of the white man. But what actually happened was far from what Wovoka, their Messiah, preached. Ghost Dancers follows Lt. George Hawkins from the Battle of the Little Bighorn to the newly established Indian reservations to the massacre at Wounded Knee, a massacre precipitated by the Ghost Dance. Follow George on General George Crook's "Horsemeat March." Through George, live the deaths of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, helpless to stop either. Love a woman more suitable to the 1990's than the 1890's, and watch helpless, again, as 300 men, women, and children are slaughtered on a frozen December morning by the U.S. Cavalry. Here is the story of one man's determination to make a difference.show more
