Red Power developed from the radicalization of Indigenous people in the 1960s and 1970s. The American Indian Movement was the most prominent Red Power organization. They were founded 50 years ago in 1968 and grew quickly as the militant wing of the fight for American Indian rights. They occupied the BIA in DC, Mount Rushmore, combated police abuse and most famously had a 73-day stand off with Federal marshals at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. This talk will discuss the rise of Red Power and AIM's legacy today.
