1. Reccommended Reading

"IN THE SPIRIT OF CRAZY HORSE," by Peter Mathiessen

National bestseller. The story of Leonard Peltier and the FBI's war on the American Indian Movement. Meticulously researched, heavily footnoted work 600 pages of text, 34 pages of footnotes, extensive index. Kept off the bookshelves in the United States for over eight years by lawsuits filed by Governor of South Dakota, William Janklow, and an agent of the FBI. Both lawsuits were dismissed. This work is featured in the book, "100 Banned Books," published by Checkermark Books. A must read for anyone seriously interested in the story of the conviction of Leonard Peltier, and the unrest and terror on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the 1970's.

Michael Apted documentary narrated by Robert Redford. Excellent video companion to the above mentioned book. Re-enforces Peter Mathiessen's assertions of FBI machinations and misconduct in the prosecution of Leonard Peltier for the murder of two FBI agents, Jack Coler and Ron Williams.

"THE UNQUIET GRAVE, The FBI and the struggle for the Soul of Indian Country By Steve Hendricks
The Peter Mathiessen book and the Michael Apted video are the most common initial sources for people that become interested in the "rein of terror" on the Pine Ridge Reservation during the 1970's, which was book ended between the senseless murders of two innocents, Raymond Yellow Thunder, and Anna Mae Pictou Aquash. In my view this book is the definitive work on these subjects. This struggle has been compared to a war, and in war as it is said, "Truth is the first casualty." Hendricks navigates this minefield of misinformation, diversion and deceit that cover and conceal the truth. Before you reach final judgment in these matters, read this book.. It is likely that neither side in this conflict is entirely pleased with Hendricks' work, which is often a sign that the truth has been reached. Regardless of your bias or sympathy in these matters you will find this work a riveting, albeit unsettling read. Highly recommended!
