Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee mind map is History based Non-Fiction. Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was written by Dee Brown. "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" was the conclusion of Brown's lifelong interest in Western history, which began when he was a little lad growing up in Arkansas. He received his "first true insight" about their past in a darkened theater, where he would frequently join his buddies to see western movies. The book recounts the history of American expansionism from the perspective of Native Americans who have suffered as a result. Brown outlines the displacement of Native Americans as a result of forced relocations and years of battle perpetrated by the US government. The consequence is a massacre of Navajo bystanders. The US Army General James Carleton orders the Navajos to relocate to a reservation at Bosque Redondo, where the Apache had recently been moved, but is met with resistance. Employing a scorched-earth campaign, Kit Carson and Carleton force a large majority of resistant Navajos and Apache to surrender and flee to the reservation. Manuelito and a few other Navajo leaders refuse to surrender but finally agree to relocate to the Bosque in 1866 "for the sake of the women and children", signing a peace treaty on June 1, 1868.
