People need to ask old AIM about their involvement & knowledge of the murder of Annie Mae Aquash? What happened to black activist Perry Ray Robinson who was last seen at Wounded Knee 73' and is rumored to be buried there after a scuffle with AIMsters in a bunker? Why is the Peltier myth still going and who collects the proceeds to his supposed defense fund? Many more questions about much of their history exist but denial & silence is the game they play. Remember, Clyde Bellecourt is a convicted felon and former drug dealer who claimed he did it for the movement at one point. Do people honestly think his behavior has changed to that of an honest person with the people's interest at heart? Ask around the Native community as to what they know and think of him and do an article on that. This tired romantic notion of noble warriors fighting for our people is riddled with lies and cover-ups.
