Wiping the Tears of Seven Generations

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 1991
Running time:57 minutes
Director:Gary Rhine and Fidel Moreno

Description: Four times each December beginning in 1986 and continuing to 1990, as many as 300 Native American riders at a time traveled by horseback 250 miles along pathways through South Dakota which are sanctified by the blood of those who died at the place Natives call Greasy Grass, and most others know as Wounded Knee. These memorial rides, with one participant for each of those massacred in December of 1890, were often undertaken in great hardship and were intended as a sacrifice which would clear the way for a recovery of Lakota ways, traditions, and sacred lands. In this documentary, in addition to footage of the ride and its riders, young Lakota express their hopes for the future, while older tribe members recall the painful and difficult times they all survived in order to reach this point.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
