They Call Me Uncivilized
by: Walter Littlemoon

Walter Littlemoon’s memoir, They Called Me Uncivilized, is a call to awareness from within the heart of Wounded Knee. In telling his story, Littlemoon describes the impact federal Indian policies have had on his life and on the history of his family. He gives a rare view into the cruelty inflicted on generations of Native American children through the implementation of U.S. government boarding schools, which resulted in a muted truth, called Soul Wound by some. In addition, and for the first time, his narrative provides a resident’s view of the 1973 militant Occupation of Wounded Knee and the lasting impact that takeover has had on his community.
