The Wounded Knee Occupation offered very little information to those living in the village during the 71-day incident. However, these excerpts were taken by reporter Kevin McKiernan, who was inside the Indian museum on the reservation during the time of the April 26th fire fight that resulted in shooting of Buddy Lamont.

Excerpts include:

Radio equipment monitored Red Arrow / Heavy fire prompts those contained inside the reservation to request a medic / Radio discussions to negotiate the removal of the wounded / Medical staff is given 10 minutes and required to carry only a white flag while retrieving the injured / One death is confirmed; that of Buddy Lamont.
