Ojibwa Warrior

Dennis Banks and the Rise of the American Indian Movement

Dennis Banks     2004     352p      6 x 9

The autobiography of Dennis Banks and the story of the American Indian Movement (AIM), of which he was a co-founder. The warrior’s story covers ground as vast as the country itself, from the reservation to forced schooling, a stint in the US Air Force, the poverty of the Indian slums in MN, prison (arrested for stealing groceries to feed his family), and the founding, and rise, of AIM—through the march on Washington, the Mayflower riot, and armed standoff at Pine Ridge, further imprisonment, the SLA encounter, and the continued struggle for American Indian sovereignty, philosophy, and religion. Illustrated with the photographs of Richard Erdoes
