The Occupation of Alcatraz
Josh MacPhee 2006 10.5 x 16.5
“From November 1969 to June 1971 a coalition of American Indian students and urban Indians, calling themselves ‘Indians of All Tribes’, occupied Alcatraz Island off the coast of San Francisco as a call to resistance against US domination of native peoples and land. The coalition publicized the occupation through a widely distributed newsletter and a radio show broadcast in multiple cities. This action sparked years of Native resistance, including the 1972 takeover of the Bureau of Indian Affairs Headquarters in Washington D.C. and the re-occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973.”
