Description

Ojibwa Warrior: Dennis Banks and the Rise of the American Indian Movement is written with acclaimed writer and photographer Richard Erdoes, in which Dennis Banks tells his own story for the first time and also traces the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM). The authors present an insider’s understanding of AIM protest events—the Trail of Broken Treaties march to Washington, D.C.; the resulting takeover of the BIA building; the riot at Custer, South Dakota; and the 1973 standoff at Wounded Knee. Enhancing the narrative are dramatic photographs, most taken by Richard Erdoes, depicting key people and events. Dennis Banks (born April 12, 1937), a Native American leader, teacher, lecturer, activist, actor and author, is an Anishinaabe born on Leech Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota.
