Saturday 6/23: Film showing for Peltier

*Broken Rainbow* is a documentary film that presents a moving account of the forced relocation of 12,000 Navajo Native Americans from their ancestral homes in Arizona by the government. The Navajo were relocated to aid mining speculation in a process that began in the 1970s and continues to this day. The United States government claims that by moving the Navajo off the land, it is settling a long-standing dispute between the Navajo and Hopi Tribes. To the traditional Navajo and Hopi, there is no dispute. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

We can see why AIM is so necessary to defend traditional Native Americans. Leonard Peltier and other AIM warriors continue to fight for justice for Native Americans and an end to the theft and rape of the land.
