Part 2: Remembering the Occupation of Alcatraz
November 20th marks the 36th anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz whereby in the early morning hours 89 people members the organization â€œIndians of All Tribesâ€ landed on Alcatraz Island, former site of the famous US federal penitentiary, in San Francisco Bay. The group claimed the island, by the â€œright of discovery,â€ and the by the terms of the 1868 Sioux Treaty that permitted Indians the right to unused federal property on Indian land. The occupation lasted for over eighteen months and helped to solidify what was to become known as the â€œRed Power Movementâ€ and the beginning of a wider and more comprehensive indigenous activist movement.
