Wounded Knee Antelope Horn Front

WOUNDED KNEE ANTELOPE HORN

This tip of an antelope horn was decorated with a colored sacred hoop of the Plains Indians.  Gathered for me by a dear friend who went directly to the site, it was shot by a descendant of a survivor of the massacre of Wounded Knee, on the Wound Knee, South Dakota location - 102˚ W 21’/43˚ N 08’.  Provenance can give material, place, and person meaning.
