BERKELEY -- In the beginning, there were the students at the University of California Berkeley and the Third World Liberation Front Strike. The 50-day protest resulted in the creation of Interdisciplinary Ethnic Studies for Black, Chicano, Asian and Native Americans.

Then, there was the Occupation of Alcatraz.

Dr. LaNada War Jack's new book is a book of history and personal biography which details the Occupation of Alcatraz, the takeover of the BIA in Washington, the fishing rights struggle in the Northwest, Wounded Knee in '73, Pyramid Lake water rights battle, and Standing Rock.

The book, Native Resistance, An Intergenerational Fight for Survival and Life, is a book of no compromise on the issues of American Indian land, fishing and water rights.

The book chronicles how the United States systems of oppression backfired, as Native Americans rose up in resistance.

The book, just released, is also a history book of America, which details the greed of whites in Europe that resulted in a cruel, violent and warring people that colonized this land in a reign of genocide and terror.

In her new book Native Resistance, War Jack, Shoshone Bannock, details her childhood, both her good grades and getting kicked out of every high school she attended.
