New resources from the Library

American Indian Movement and Native American Radicalism via Gale
Trial May 8th through June 7th, 2014 FBI files illustrate the evolution of AIM as an organization of social protest and the development of Native American radicalism. An intuitive platform makes it all cross-searchable by subject or collection. Date Range: 1968-1979. Content: 14,195 pages. Source Library: Federal Bureau of Investigation Library. The American Indian Movement (AIM) expanded from its roots in Minnesota and broadened its radical political agenda to include a searching analysis of the nature of social injustice in America. AIM used the media to present its message to the American public. On Thanksgiving Day 1970, AIM seized the replica of the Mayflower. In 1971, members occupied Mount Rushmore; in 1972, they took over the Bureau of Indian Affairs headquarters in Washington, D.C. In February 1973, AIM members initiated a 71-day siege at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in response to the 1890 massacre of some 150 Lakota men, women and children by the U.S. Seventh Calvary.
