There are at least 3 versions of this poster. ID 6537 is probably the earliest, produced in the 1970s, and includes reference to Akwesasne Notes and Glad Day Press. Also, pale orange version (ID 26981 and ID 26982) also includes reference to Akwesasne Notes and Glad Day Press, and were possibly copied from original (ID 6537) as the face and text has less details, like a generation removed from the original. Third and probably latest version (ID 3754 and ID 6538) has removed references to both Akwesasne Notes and Glad Day Press.
Production Notes: yellow paper, includes reference to Akwesasne Notes (founded 1969) and Glad Day Press (folded 1973)
