The annual Wounded Knee Memorial Motorcycle Ride started on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and ended at the Wounded Knee Massacre site on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
On August 2, 148 riders made a stop in Eagle Butte to attend both opening ceremonies of the new Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Veterans Park and the Ledger Art Exhibit at the Lakota Cultural Center.
The next day, the riders continued their route to the community of Bridger, where they met with community members who shared stories about Chief Spotted Elk, who is also known as Big Foot.
Escorted by CRST Veteran Service Officer Robert Dunsmore, the riders then made their way to the Wounded Knee Massacre site.
Once at the massacre site, the riders conducted prayers at the mass grave.
