#TDIH - March 8, 1970: Leonard Peltier Joins the Fort Lawton Protest



On March 8, 1970, Native American and other protesters, including Leonard Peltier and Jane Fonda, clashed with military police in an attempt to reclaim Fort Lawton for local tribes. The protests were led by Bob Satiacum and by Bernie Whitebear, who would go on to found Daybreak Star Center in today's Discovery Park.
