On June 26th, 1975, two unmarked cars sped onto the Jumping Bull Ranch on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Two plain clothes FBI agents had come onto the land ostensibly to serve a warrant for the theft of a pair of used cowboy boots. During these years, the "Reign of Terror," firebombing, beatings, intimidation, disappearences, and other COINTELPRO tactics were more than commonplace, they were the rule of law.

My name is Leonard Peltier.
I am a Lakota and Anishnabe
And I am living in the United States penitentiary,
Which is the swiftest growing
Indian reservation in the country...
