Overview

Ric Burns' four-part series The Way West comes to an end with the final episode The Way West: Ghost Dance, 1877-1893. Chronicling these years, the release again focuses on the Native American perspective. Western expansion meant the death of many Indian rights and the seizure of tribal lands. Having already conceded vast territories to gold-seeking Americans, the native people had nowhere left to go. Little Big Horn represented the final straw for restless Anglos. The Way West: Ghost Dance, 1877-1893 describes the spiritual practice of Native Americans who found themselves represented by the increasingly powerless Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. Episode four ends with a last battle, which would determine the fate of all Indians: the Battle at Wounded Knee.
