The Takuwe exhibit is originated by the Center For American Indian Research And Native Studies (CAIRNS).
The title of this exhibit is one Lakota word: Takuwe. In English: Why. The focus of the exhibit is the 1890 massacre of Lakotas at Wounded Knee, but includes historical context leading to the massacre, along with contemporary context related to land issues and opportunities at Wounded Knee today.
Takuwe is available to museum visitors beginning June 1 through September 7, 2020
