FILE - In this April 26, 2004 file photo Cheryl Robinson, center, and her two daughters, Desiree Marks, left, and Tamara Kamara read a map outlining various landmarks at Wounded Knee, S.D. Ray Robinson, Cheryl's husband and Desiree and Tamara'a father, is believed to have been killed at the site during a 71-standoff between the American Indian Movement and federal agents in 1973. Documents recently released by the FBI to a Buffalo, N.Y., lawyer shed new light on the 40-year-old case of Robinson, an activist and follower of Martin Luther King Jr. The FBI says Robinson was killed during the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee, and it suspects militant members of the American Indian Movement are responsible. His body was never found. (AP Photo/Carson Walker, File)
