SACRED GROUND shows the connection between Mount Rushmore and Wounded Knee. Mount Rushmore is an icon of the United States, attracting millions of visitors each year. The Wounded Knee Massacre site, only a two-hour drive away, receives just a handful of visitors each day. Mount Rushmore is carved into the granite spires of the Black Hills. To the Lakota, who where slaughtered at Wounded Knee, those hills are sacred. Today, Wounded Knee is in one of the poorest counties in the United States with a lower per capita income than Angola. By contrast, Mount Rushmore is a hub of tourism and commerce. Meet the people who live at, work at and visit each of the memorials.
