Elkhorn Valley Museum and the Norfolk Public Library will bring the Dakota Daughters to the Norfolk Public Library to present "A Story of Wounded Knee: Three Women, Three Cultures, Three Stories." The Dakota Daughters performers are Geraldine Goes in Center, Joyce Jefferson, and Lillian Witt. This living history performance examines the hopes, fears, beliefs, and values of their Lakota, Afro-American and Euro-American fore-mothers. After the performance, the audience is invited to participate in an open discussion about the conflicting historical accounts of events surrounding the massacre and the continuing impact of cultural differences on relationships today.

Humanities Nebraska programming is made possible by:
