Dear Mr. Avila,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Records of Controversies, 1878 - 12/28/1907 in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that includes the file unit titled Correspondence Between Military Officers Regarding Wounded Knee Tragedy which contains 26 digitized documents. These documents are available using the Catalog. For any questions about these records, please contact the National Archives at Kansas City (RM-KC) at email@example.com.
We also located the Background Files to the Study "Wounded Knee Study", 1969 - 1978 in the Records of the Army Staff (Record Group 319) that contains official correspondence, public letters, reports, lists, journal articles, newspaper clippings, and copies of telegrams relating to the “Wounded Knee Study” compiled in response to the proposed legislation of South Dakota Senator James Abourezk to indemnify the descendants of Sioux Indians killed at the Massacre of Wounded Knee in 1890. Topics also include background information on similar legislative efforts in 1938 and public outcry against the mollification of the Wounded Knee Massacre by a Congressional report.
