Descendants of Wounded Knee Massacre go to the Capitol to revoke medals of honor

Nine Native Americans in South Dakota boarded a flight out of Rapid City Regional Airport Sunday morning to the Capitol to tell Congress to revoke Wounded Knee medals of honor.

Several descendants of the Wounded Knee Massacre gathered to head out to Washington D.C. to push for the Remove The Stain Act. It's an act to rescind all the medals of honor awarded to people involved in the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre.

After sending several letters to the U.S. President and members of Congress, FourDirections members ask for the act to be included in the next National Defense Authorization Act.
