Rescind 20 Medals of Honor awarded to soldiers of the U.S. Army 7th Cavalry in 1890 at Wounded Knee.

Rescind 20 Medals of Honor awarded to soldiers of the U.S. Army 7th Cavalry who participated in the slaughter of 300 or so Lakota Sioux, mostly unarmed women and children (approximately 200) at Wounded Knee on December, 29 1890.

Require all federal agencies and arms to refer to the Wounded Knee Massacre as a "Massacre" and not a "Battle or Battlefield."

Help us rewrite history and forge a better way forward. We do not remember these tragedies to hurt, we remember to heal. We are facing the holocaust head strong, we are coming through it. We are lifting our heads and reclaiming our dignity.

1. Just Goes to Show the US Has a LONG History of Indignities

It's not something recent with a helicopter gunship mowing down civilians or indiscriminate armed drones bombing weddings. The US has felt privileged since it was founded and answerable to no laws and no one.

We continue to spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined so we can continue to swing the largest penis on the world stage. We're starting to learn that no longer matters because it's hard to detect terrorist groups who want to blow up your world rather than another nation's army that marshals on your border.
