Reps. Denny Heck (D-WA), Paul Cook (R-CA), and Deb Haaland (D-NM) have begun pushing for a bill to rescind the Medals of Honor given to U.S. soldiers who participated in the 1890 Wounded Knee massacre.

Twenty service members from the 7th Cavalry Regiment received medals after the attack, which claimed the lives of at least 150 Native Americans, roughly two-thirds of whom were women and children. Only a small percentage of Lakota warriors had arms. 

It is unclear who fired first. One version claims a deaf tribesman was reluctant to surrender his rifle, which went off as he and a U.S. soldier tussled over it.

As a conservative white male, I have no qualm admitting this was a horrible massacre against Native Americans. If any race ever deserved any reparations, it would be the families of these slaughtered Indians.
