Fire Destroys Wounded Knee Massacre Museum In SD

September 7, 2012, 8:58 AM

WALL, SD -

An electrical fire has destroyed a museum in South Dakota dedicated to the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The Sunday fire burned 80 percent of the building in the town of Wall along with the 30 exhibits inside. Museum co-founder Steve Wyant says "it's like a parent losing a child."

Wyant says fire investigators determined the blaze started in faulty wiring beneath the floor. He's still compiling a monetary loss.

The museum detailed the events of Dec. 29, 1890, when U.S Army soldiers demanding the surrender of Lakota Indians opened fire. About 300 men, women and children died.

The 10-year-old museum drew about 7,500 people each year.
