#NativeLivesMatter and Other Turtle Island Indigenous News

June 26 will mark the 40th year since the ‘Incident at Oglala’, and 39 years of Leonard Peltier’s wrongful imprisonment for the shooting death of two FBI agents at Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975.  This is dated, but offers a very brief narrative of the story.  ‘Incident at Oglala’, a 1992 documentary by Michael Apted, narrated by Robert Redford is available for viewing here (about 90 minutes, and full screen can be toggled).

(Enough Aready!) and on the day that NAFTA took effect, staged a rebellion in Chiapas in which they took back some of their land that had been stolen by feudal lords, in order that they might create a better world for themselves and coming generations, one built on justice, equality, and freedom, by way of a bottom-upward horizontal and direct democracy.
