Ever since he covered the siege at Wounded Knee, Kevin McKiernan — here with Lakota elders Oscar Bear Runner (left) and Tom Bad Cob (right) in 1973 — has been captivated by this decisive moment in Native American history. Now three years into filming his documentary, the veteran foreign correspondent heads into postproduction — but needs $60,000 to cross the finish line. Help Wounded Knee: A Line in the Sand get there — just Google “Kickstarter Wounded Knee” to get to the site, where a trailer for the film can be seen, too.
