In 1890, the American army exterminated the tribe of Big Foot at Wounded Knee. In 1986, Lakota horsemen decided to follow the same tracks as their ancestors and honour the site that remains a symbol of the Native American genocide. For five years, they confronted the harsh Dakota winter and followed Big Foot’s path. As part of a body of work on the atrocities committed against Native Americans, Guy Le Querrec joined them on their last journey in 1990, tracing the route of Chief Big Foot one hundred years after the massacre.
