KPIX's Jay Newburn reports from Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, where the vessel Sea Rogue is shown being used to ferry people to and from the occupied island of Alcatraz. Newburn interviews Harvey Wells, who has led a group of American Indians from Los Angeles to support the occupation. Wells declares that: "We're taking our cue from direct action and other movements throughout the world we've observed and we've decided it's time for us to govern the destiny of our people ... We're waiting for the rebirth of a new nation of Indians and the dawning of a new day for our people."
