Government Repression of the American Indian Movement

Program #CHUW002. Recorded in Alfred, NY on March 23, 1991.

Audio sample:
The reality of what occurred on the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation in the 1970s is not reflected in most contemporary histories of the United States. Scores of indigenous people were killed, many more were wounded. Ward Churchill, an activist with the American Indian Movement, draws lessons and inspiration from the events at Pine Ridge as native peoples continue their struggle for land and dignity. He also discusses the Leonard Peltier case, the subject of the documentary Incident at Oglala.


Ward Churchill

Ward Churchill is a prolific author. Among his many books are Fantasies of the Master Race, Struggle for the Land, Indians Are Us? and A Little Matter of Genocide. Churchill made national headlines when he resigned from his position as Chairman of Ethnic Studies department at the University of Colorado due to increasing public outcry against the contents of an essay from his book, Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens.
