One year of the Alcatraz Occupation
KRON-TV news footage from November 12th 1970 featuring interviews on Alcatraz Island with John Trudell (1946-2015), a member of the Santee Sioux and Adam Fortunate Eagle, a hereditary member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians. They reflect on it's occupation by American Indians after a whole year. Trudell states: "We're almost in a position now where we can't really lose." Fortunate Eagle explains how: "Alcatraz represents a turnaround where Indian people have asserted themselves in their desire to break out of this cycle of poverty that exists on the reservations and the urban centers." Also includes extensive views of Alcatraz (of occupiers and the island itself). Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
