150. (N) LEONARD PELTIER: AN AMERICAN POLITICAL PRISONER (1982)
A leader of the American Indian Movement, Leonard Peltier is serving two
consecutive life sentences in federal prison for "aiding and abetting" in the
deaths of two FBI agents. The highly controversial case has received great
international interest, including human rights tribunals and Amnesty
International, because of allegations of judicial and FBI misconduct:
threatening witnesses, producing false evidence, perjury and withholding
evidence. A book about Peltier is being completed and Robert Redford is
considering directing a film based on the Peltier case. We present an
interview with Peltier's cousin, Steve Robideau, who relates the specifics
about Peltier's case as well as some of the other struggles of Native
Americans today. Robideau also presents fascinating insights into Native
American philosophy and values.
