Greetings from Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument!
This is a beautiful sacred space that commemorates Custer's Last Stand and contributes to an understanding of the Lakota and other Plains Indian tribes. I was reminded of the savage atrocities committed against indigenous peoples during the founding of this country. When I went to school General Custer was a hero and I even had an action figure so I appreciate getting a less sanitized history lesson.
