In honor of Indigenous Peoples Day, MuckRock will be continuing our coverage of the American Indian Movement and other Native American activist groups. In typical MuckRock fashion, this involves mainly FBI files. We published two this summer, one on the famed Oglala Lakota activist Russell Means, and the other on Isáŋyathi Dakota writer, activist, and orator John Trudell.
You can help us release the files of AIM leaders and other famous Indigenous activist figures by submitting your idea in the form below! If the individual is still alive, we’ll need their consent, so reach out to info@MuckRock.com if you can help. We look forward to getting your submissions and opening up the history of AIM and other Indigenous struggles.
