Bibliography Leonard Peltier
Native activist Leonard Peltier has been a political prisoner in the U.S. since 1976. On a June morning in 1975, a fatal shoot-out took place between FBI agents and American Indians on a remote property near Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in which an Indian and two federal agents were killed. Eventually, four members of AIM (American Indian Movement) were indicted on charges of murder in the deaths of the two agents. Leonard Peltier, the only one to be convicted, is now serving consecutive life sentences in a federal penitentiary.
