Exhibition Annotation:
Leonard Peltier is a Native American activist, artist, and former member of the American Indian Movement who was convicted of aiding in the killing of two FBI agents during a shootout on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975. Imprisoned since 1977, Peltier is one of the longest incarcerated prisoners in the U.S. The Supreme Court has refused to review the case despite documents proving that the FBI faked evidence, perjured themselves in court and coerced witnessed to make false statements against him. Peltier is supported by Amnesty International, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights, Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rigoberta Menchú and many others.
