13th ANNUAL AWARENESS EVENT FOR POLITICIAL PRISONER LEONARD PELTIER SCHEDULED FOR JUNE ON THE PINE RIDGE RESERVATION.
OGLALA, SD:  The 13th Annual Oglala Commemoration will be held on June 26th, 2012 in Oglala, South Dakota.
This annual event is to honor and remember the lives lost during the 1970s Civil War on the Reservation and to also raise awareness toward the unjust imprisonment of AIM member Leonard Peltier whose incarceration resulted from a Shootout incident between AIM members and Federal police agents in Oglala 37 years ago.

"The genocide against our people did not allow us to pray in our traditional manner, speak our languages, or practice our traditional way of life. And these assault on our cultures continue in one form or another to this very day...the battle to protect the land continues, when seventy five percent of the all energy resources in North America are still on Indian lands. Most importantly, water –our most precious medicine- is still being stolen by governments and greedy corporation. We must stand together...to fight these monstrous acts for the survival of our children. We must continue to think like our grandfathers and grandmothers, chiefs and great leaders before us, who envisioned what it would be like for their children seven generations from now." -- Clyde Bellecourt
