KPIX's Mike Lee reports from Shasta County in north eastern California on June 24th 1970, where a group of Pit River Indians are occupying a PG&E employee's holiday camp, to reclaim ancestral land. Opens with silent views of a court house and the countryside, followed by a press conference with an Indian spokesman: "Our primary objective all along has been the U.S. government and that they - not PG&E - hold all of our land. And that if we're trying to get land back, we should be trying to get it back from the government."
