Pressler: Memorial At Wounded Knee Needed

Pressler: Memorial At Wounded Knee Needed
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Independent U.S. Senate candidate Larry Pressler says if he's elected he'll push for a American Indian "holocaust memorial" museum at Wounded Knee.

Pressler says he got the idea from journalist and Oglala Lakota Tribe member Tim Giago.

Pressler says the museum would need funding from the federal and state governments. He says the project could include other facilities so tourists could use it as a base for touring the Black Hills.

Pressler is a former Republican and served two terms in the House followed by three Senate terms from 1975 to 1997.

Pressler, former Republican Gov. Mike Rounds, Democrat Rick Weiland and independent Gordon Howie are seeking the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.
