Native Heritage Month

November Native Heritage Month and we've got some exciting events planned for it! Our next event is:

Indigenous Injustice – The Leonard Peltier Story

Key Note Speaker: Michele Bollinger

6:30 PM ,Art Soc 1213

This is the story of an ongoing example of Indigenous Injustice committed against Leonard Peltier, a native activist and member of the American Indian Movement Peltier was sentenced to consecutive life terms in the late 70s for his alleged involvement in the deaths of two FBI agents during a shoot out at Pine Ridge Reservation. His supporters have tried to appeal and overturn his convictions many times because there is concern over the fairness of the proceedings leading to his conviction, including fabrication of evidence and coercion of witnesses. Michele Bollinger is one Peltier supporter leading the charge in the DC area, presenting his case and lobbying for his fair treatment while incarcerated, which has been another facet of the Peltier supporters' crusade. Clips from the documentary about the subject “Incident at Oglala” will be shown.

That's all for now, until next time, donvdagohvi!
