Edgar's picture

The Future Generations Riders arrived in Timber Lake on Friday afternoon after the first day of their annual ride to Wounded Knee. Every year on December 15, regardless of the weather, people gather at Sitting Bull’s Camp near Bullhead on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to begin a nearly-300-mile horseback ride to the site of the 1890 Wounded Knee massacre, on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

The Future Generations Ride (Oomaka Tokatakiya) is a continuation of the Big Foot Memorial Ride that ran from 1986 to 1990.
