Bernie Lafferty speaks about Ray Robinson's killing inside Wounded Knee 1973

 

"I took part in every firefight of the whole occupation while still carrying on my duties as a leader; I met with the other leaders, to help negotiate, to make decisions about food, clothing, housing, who we should let in or out, informers, supply trains, outside help and support and other activities I could be involved in for the success of our new nation. During the last few days I went alone to the bunkers at night to talk loudly or shine lights around to fool the enemy into thinking the bunkers were still occupied. During every firefight I was either in the the bunkers or at the command post fighting. I was always available to the people for any decisions that had to be made. I had to make the decision not to bring in Buddy Lamont until late afternoon after I knew he was killed in the early morning. I had to leave Ray's life to fight alone in eagle bunker after he was shot through both legs. I did these things to save other Indian lives. I suffered the humiliation of the final surrender when I would rather have died on free Indian land."
