The cars belonged to FBI agents Jack R. Coler, 28, and Ronald A. Williams, 27, who had come to serve an arrest warrant on a Native American kidnapping suspect named Jimmy Eagle. Leonard Peltier and two AIM comrades involved in the Pine Ridge takeover thought the agents were coming after...

    June 26, 1975: A date not easily forgotten by FBI Agents. On that horrible day, Special Agents Ron Williams and Jack Coler were gunned down in an open meadow on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Following the initial hail of fire from the assailants, three gunmen approached the injured Agents and finished them off at close range. Ron Williams and Jack Coler are known as Service Martyrs, a special designation reserved for Federal Agents who gave their lives while engaged in direct adversarial action. Their sacrifice is also remembered as the only two Agents in Bureau history to...

    The media have been quick to report the motive behind Hollywood mogul David Geffen’s dissing of Hillary Clinton, namely his pique at her husband’s failure to pardon jailed Indian activist Leonard Peltier. What they have not reported is why liberal icon Peltier remains in jail. Indeed, Clinton’s failure to pardon Peltier stands as one of the more honorable moments in his dubious career. A little background is in order. “There is nothing in this message that can make you happy,” so wrote Paul DeMain, editor of News From Indian Country (NFIC) to his faithful readers in February 2002. He was...

    FARGO, N.D. - A judge has rejected an appeal by imprisoned American Indian activist Leonard Peltier, who argued the U.S. government had no right to try him for crimes that occurred on a South Dakota reservation. Peltier, 60, is serving a life sentence for killing two FBI agents during a 1975 standoff on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He was convicted in 1977 and has filed numerous appeals. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson ruled that the government has the right to prosecute and imprison anyone who kills federal agents, no matter where the crimes occur. The Pine Ridge shootout left...

    (A) That Americans will set aside issues of color, nationality, religion, and political beliefs and truly care as much about the staggering number of Tsunami-catastrophe victims as they do about the victims of 9/11. And, in light of this caring, that the US's 277 billionaires will leap into the breach left by President Bush's inadequate offering of $35 million dollars of aid (which was a full $33 million short of the $68 million offered by the considerably poorer nation of Spain). (1) That each of the said billionaires will give 10% of their total assets to relief and reconstruction efforts...

    RAPID CITY -- With a courtroom hanging on her every word, the former common-law wife of American Indian Movement leader Dennis Banks testified Wednesday that she and the late Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash heard Leonard Peltier brag about killing two FBI agents at Oglala in 1975. Darlene Nichols, also known as Ka-Mook Nichols, said the women were traveling with Peltier and Banks in late 1975. "He (Peltier) put his hand like this," she said, using her thumb and forefinger to imitate a gun, "and started talking about the two FBI agents." Nichols continued tearfully, "He said, 'That (expletive) was begging for...
