KQED news report from Alcatraz on December 10th 1969 featuring a conference with government officials, during which protesters share their concerns about how federal organizations deal with American Indians. Activists, including Stella Leach and Earl Livermore, are invited to review the current situation in a series of interviews. Kim Robertson (chairman of the visiting officials) comments that: “I know we all seriously would like to do something special for Indians. I think we all have recognized that our preoccupation with the black problem, with the brown problem … perhaps the red problem may have been overlooked.”
