This book contains more first and second-hand source materials than many others about the assassination of Crazy Horse, making the narrative an interesting mix of Indigenous and colonial perspectives on the transition period of the Lakota from free-living peoples to a people experiencing the occupation of their homeland by a ruthless, immoral colonizer.
A photographic recounting of the story of the historic occupation and confrontation between AIM and the U.S. government and their allies that gave impetus to the language and cultural reclamation efforts that continue to this day in Indian Country. This book is rare and a difficult find, but really captures the feeling of the time and provides a lot of information about the American Indian Movement and the ongoing colonization of Turtle Island.
Local foods have garnered much attention in recent years, but the concept is hardly new: indigenous peoples have always made the most of nature’s gifts.

Dennis Banks’ account of his life and the genesis of the American Indian Movement. An interesting read, told humbly by a leader in the true sense of the word.

Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick tell the history of the U.S from the perspective of those who have lost the most as the government has been co-opted by big money and the military-industrial complex. (Namely, the American people…) There are lots of interesting stories that most history textbooks have chosen not to tell. This is thee real reason why our children do not receive a first-rate education, because history is largely written to legitimize the status quo, rather than to illuminate the past and present so that we can see our way to a better future.
