In November 1969 a group of American Indians occupied the abandoned federal prison at Alcatraz. Their 19-month occupation of the island attracted national attention to Native rights. In 1970, the activists published newsletters, Alcatraz Indians of All Tribes, that outlined the activists’ goals and detailed the progress made in establishing their community on the island. Join us on April 15, 2021 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) as we examine these important resources.
