Well let's not forget what the 7th cavalry did at wounded knee.

Womp womp, won a war

Many Sioux believed that if they practiced the Ghost Dance and rejected the ways of the white man, the gods would create the world anew and destroy all non-believers, including non-Indians.

Whatever the motives, the massacre ended the Ghost Dance movement and was the last major confrontation in America’s deadly war against the Plains Indians.

So the Ghost Dance was performed by a group of Indians who wanted to reverse the white expansion. Didn't know that. I guess what will never be answered is how many of those Indians at that place were not down with that movement. Maybe they tried to ask.
