Robert Redford narrates this documentary about the violent events that took place in 1975 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Indian activists ended up in an extended standoff with FBI agents, and the result was several deaths, including two FBI agents whose killing was never clearly attributed to a specific gunman. Nevertheless, the government laid blame for the killing on Leonard Peltier, a Sioux political leader and activist with the American Indian Movement. Peltier has been in prison since 1977. The film details the brutal federal policies towards Indian people and the discrepancies in the government’s case against Peltier.

Ira Coyne, Chauncey Peltier share about the Mural dedicated to Leonard Peltier October 11th, 2015 at 5pm

A local sign painter and muralist in Olympia, Ira Coyne, heard Chauncey interviewed by Raven Redbone on his show Make No Bones About it on KAOS radio. When Ira learned Leonard was a painter, he looked up his work and was taken by the pink lion depicted in Stalking. He then reached out to Raven and Chauncey to turn this piece into a mural at our city’s artesian well. Chauncey is now in Olympia for the week to work on the mural with Ira and anyone else who shows up at the well to lend a hand. (The official ribbon cutting for the mural will coincide with Olympia’s Inaugural Indigenous Peoples Day, this Monday October 12, at 12:00 pm by Olympia’s Artesian Well.)
