PRA Archive #:

Description: 

Dennis Banks, co-founder of A.I.M. (The American Indian Movement) discusses how that organization was a response to police brutality against Native Americans in Minneapolis, and also to deal with issues of unemployment, poor housing, and the B.I.A. (Bureau of Indian Affairs). AIM has also fought against treaty violations, and government efforts to attack Indian culture by taking children away from their families and putting them in government schools. Dennis goes on to describe the Native American perspective of a personalized universe, not land as real estate for personal greed. Man is part of the natural environment, and the young need to understand this relationship. He concludes with a discussion of Leonard Peltier's 16 year imprisonment for a crime he did not commit, and a critical view of how Hollywood movies have created negative images of Native Americans.|ORGANIZING INDIGENOUS PEOPLES TO FIGHT AGRESSION : A.I.M. / Dennis Banks| interviewed and produced by Bob DeBolt. - Dennis Banks, co-founder of A.I.M.
