It had gotten out of control, and so the governor demanded the Native Americans surrender, so that they could be taken care of, and no one would die. A couple of hundred surrendered, but many of the others did not, and sought out for a negotiation instead. The governor did not have the power to negotiate, so he told them to wait at the sand creek while he figured it out. Instead of negotiating he was ordered to kill them, since the Native Americans had killed so many people.

When he took his office that is the exact oppisite of what he did he was being an entitled selfish brat who only wanted what was best for him and not his people nor his country.

Dick Wilson, tribal chairman of the Sioux, and his conservative viewpoints were inevitably going to be removed from power. He soon learned of a protest at Pine Ridge against him, so he immediately fell back to tribal headquarters where he would be protected. However, the protesters from AIM did not actually come after him. They chose to claim Wounded Knee instead, where the massacre had taken place 83 years prior.
