WATCH: WARRIOR The Life of Leonard Peltier

Warrior: The Life of Leonard Peltier, produced and directed by Suzie Baer.

WARRIOR – The shocking, true story of Leonard Peltier, the American Indian leader locked away for life in Leavenworth Penitentiary, convicted of the alleged murder of two FBI agents during a bloody shoot-out on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. To understand Peltier’s story, a man who has come to symbolize the continued oppression of America’s indigenous peoples, Warrior takes us back to a look at his life, then role with the American Indian Movement and the violent confrontations at Pine Ridge and Wounded Knee in the Seventies, and today’s Indian reservations where the government’s plans for uranium mining and waste dumping are still being heatedly resisted by Indian activists. The heart of the documentary, is a detailed painstaking account of Peltier’s harrowing odyssey through the American justice system.

Peltier’s case has been shrouded in controversy and he is considered by Amnesty International, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, National Congress of American Indians, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Rev. Jesse Jackson, among many others, to be a political prisoner who should be immediately released.

As of 2016, Leonard Peltier is housed at Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Coleman, Florida.

  1. This should give the people of this USA, and idea of the operations of our government. They try to push the American ways onto anyone that isn’t white, This also true for why a lot of foreign countries don’t like the the Americans. Scalping of the white people was learn from the English during the American/Indian war..It is my opinion that the American Indian has been screw by the american govt. since the first landing at Plymouth Rock. They put the Indian on lands, that at the time was worthless, but in today time, it has become very valuable, and again our govt. has step in and are pushing the Indian into non-existence again in their own land, which was given to them by our govt…THE WHITE MAN IS A ROBBER OF THE AMERICAN INDIANS, And they are the ones that should be on trial. Leonard Peltier is an excape goat for the FBI, to cover their asses. Therefore he should be release from prison, and paid for the time he spent for protecting himself & his people …WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE LAW OF (STAND YOUR GROUND)..It appears it is on the books for one reason..That is to use it against the people the American govt. deems as unfit. (black, American Indians, & Muslins). WHAT A COUNTRY, WHERE FREEDON IS NOT FREE IF YOU ARE A CERTIN RACE.
