The Journey Museum Celebrates Women’s History Month

The Journey Museum and Learning Center is hosting several presentations in March to commemorate Women’s History Month, reports KOTA News. The first presentation held was a play entitled Dakota Daughters and explored the accounts of several women’s recollection of the Wounded Knee Massacre.

Three women who played fictional characters characterized what life for women would have been like from 1865-1890 in the region. Women’s perspectives were largely unrecorded during this time period. The women starring in the play researched women’s accounts of Wounded Knee to help viewers see the event from a fresh perspective.
