An Info Night to honor indigenous warriors John Graham and Anna Mae Aquash
This Friday, December 17th

On December 10th, a South Dakota jury wrongfully convicted native land
defender John Graham of the 1975/76 murder of his friend and comrade
in the American Indian Movement, Anna Mae Aquash. John Graham was
found guilty based on insubstantiative testimony, without a shred of
physical evidence, and now faces life imprisonment.

We Shall Remain: Wounded Knee 1973

A documentary that chronicles the 1973 armed occupation of Wounded
Knee on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, conveying the
atmosphere of violent repression during this period known as the
“Reign of Terror”, as well as the spirit of the resistance movement
that brought Aquash and Graham to Pine Ridge.
