The Hill - A group promoting voting rights for Native Americans has asked President Trump to rescind medals awarded to soldiers who participated in the 1890 Wounded Knee massacre. Four Directions Inc., a voting rights organization that began in South Dakota told the Rapid City Journal that it sent letters to the White House last week in the hopes of convincing Trump to ask Congress to rescind the medals by inserting language doing so into the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) told the Journal, 'Wounded Knee left behind one the darkest stains in our nation’s history ...If medals were awarded to soldiers who massacred noncombatants at Wounded Knee, that was a grave mistake. We need to have a conversation about how we can rectify that.'
