On 26th June 1975 two FBI agents illegally entered Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. A shoot-out ensued and the two FBI agents and an indigenous man, Joe Stuntz, were killed. The FBI framed-up Dino Butler, Robert Robideau and Leonard Peltier for the deaths of the FBI agents. Nobody has ever been charged for the death of Joe Stuntz.

Dino and Robert were acquitted on the grounds of self-defense in their trial. Leonard Peltier was tried separately, most of his Constitutional rights were denied him in his trial and the jury wrongfully convicted him and sentenced him to 2 consecutive life-terms. He has been in prison for over 30 years.

Come see the film which explains what happened that day.
