Incident at Oglala: the Leonard Peltier story [( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1975, FBI agents illegally entered the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Gunfire erupted and a Native American and two FBI agents were killed. After the largest manhunt in FBI history, three men were apprehended, only one, Leonard Peltier, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Narrated by Robert Redford, this account of these three deaths on the Pine Ridge Reservation questions the motives behind the vthe government's prosecution of Leonard Peltier. The murders took place two years after the occupation of Wounded Knee by A.I.M. activists. During this period traditionalists and members of A.I.M. were being attacked by tribal leader Dick Wilson and his vigilante force called the "GOONs (Guardians of the Oglala Nation)." In the years between 1973 and 1975, the Reservation saw over sixty unsolved murders and had the highest murder rate in the United States. This was the environment in which Pelter was tried and convicted. The government's primary evidence against Peltier was the murder weapon. During the trial Peltier's lawyers demonstrated that evidence used in the trial had been manufactured by the prosecution. Nevertheless, Peltier was convicted of the murders of two FBI agents and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences in federal prison. Peltier's prominent supporters, including author Peter Matthiessen (who wrote a book on the Peltier case entitled In the Spirit of Crazy Horse) and Hollywood director and film star Robert Redford suggest that Peltier was the innocent victim of government law enforcement agents and prosecutors. Peltier's defenders, both inside and outside the American Indian Movement, consider him to be America's foremost political prisoner
