The Wounded Knee Mas sacre occurred on December 29, 1890, near Wounded Knee Creek on the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, USA. It was a tragic and significant event in American history involving the U.S. Army and the Lakota Sioux.

The U.S. government was concerned about the growing influence of the Ghost Dance movement among Native American communities, viewing it as a potential threat. The movement was seen by some as a spiritual revival and by others as a rebellion.
