Editorial Reviews

What are the facts? And what is the truth? in 1975, armed FBI agents illegally entered the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Gunfire erupted - a Native American and two FBI agents fell dead. After the largest manhunt in FBI history, three men were apprehended - only one, Leonard Peltier, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. This is his story. From the very beginning, Peltier's case has been dogged with controversy. Were the charges trumped up? Was the evidence falsified? Were witnesses pressured to change their testimony? Many people, including some of today's greatest legal minds, believe that Peltier is an innocent man. Twelve years ago, Robert Redford visited Leonard Peltier in prison. Today, after years of struggle with the FBI and the prison system, he and director Michael Apted (Gorillas in the Mist, Coal Miner's Daughter) are able to present Incident at Oglala - a riveting examination of the case and the real story of what may be one of the most outrageous abuses of justice in American history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Earth is Weeping June 7, 2002
Format:DVD
As you probably already know, this film concerns the blatantly unfair trail and conviction of Leonard Peltier, for the alleged crime of murdering two FBI agents at the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. The documentary begins by putting the incident in its proper perspective by showing that the Pine Ridge Reservation, at that time, had one of the highest per capita murder rates in the entire US, with the vast majority of those crimes, even today, still filed as "unsolved" (Check out Ward Churchill's "Indians are Us" and Agents of Repression for a detailed account of the killings in question). In fact, from 1973 to 1976 at least 69 Aim members and supporters were murdered�and not one person was ever convicted, or even investigated, for these brutally horrific crimes. Why were these deaths not investigated you may ask. It is because the victims were primarily American Indians involved with AIM who were actively involved in the struggle to retain the lands lawfully granted to them in the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 against the federal gov't and the corrupt, unelected BIA administration of Dick Wilson. Many have openly claimed that Wilson and his so-called "goon squad" were responsible for these killings, but no investigation was ever conducted by State law enforcement officials or by the FBI; and yet the incident that led to the shooting that left two agents and one Indian dead, centered around an investigation concerning a pair of STOLEN COWBOY BOOTS. You can draw your own conclusions from that.

Although three men were originally charged with the murder of the agents in a separate trial preceding Peltier�s illegal extradition from Canada, the first two defendants were determined to be not guilty of all charges�their acts viewed as self defense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Peltier is Innocent!!! May 23, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This documentary makes it painfully obvious how weak the government's case against Leonard Peltier really is. The fact that he was actually convicted scares me to death! Despite the fact that it was a tragedy that those two agents died that day, they had to have known the risk they were taking by storming onto a reservation, where the people lived in fear everyday that they could be killed. Regardless of what actually happened that day, and who was reponsible for those deaths, the fact of the matter is that the way the prosecution handled their case against Peltier, and the resulting conviction is a travesty of justice! Just about every claim, or piece of evidence mentioned by a government representative interviewed for this documentary was disproved by the defense, or even just plain fact. Reasonable doubt is an understatement here. And what about the fact that no one was ever tried for the death of Joe Stuntz? The government was so outraged that two of their agents had been killed, but they forgot that they are also sworn to defend and protect the residents of the Indian reservations as well! This documentary will be hard to watch, and it will make you angry that something like this can happen in the "Land of the Free", but as Americans, it is our duty to act on behalf of our fellow Americans when they are victimized in this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute, must-see! July 4, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I knew little about Leonard Peltier's situation which is why I wanted to watch this documentary. I can not believe this man is still in jail, over 20 years later. His situation is a perfect example of a government who would do what is necessary to "solve" a murder. Never mind that the case had a million holes in it that were never answered. This is the kind of thing that is not supposed to happen in America (event though it does all the time). This should be required viewing for every person in America (the land of the free!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to Learn About Today January 21, 2006
By Betsy
Format:DVD
Recently, I had the opportunity to give a short presentation in one of my English classes at Guilford College. The focus of my presentation was "Prison Writings, My Life is a Sun Dance, by Leonard Peltier. I am sad to report that not one student in the room knew who Leonard Peltier is. This is a class that is for continuing education adult students, ages 24 and up. I think it is important for all of the citizens of the United States of American to know who Leonard Peltier is, especially in the New World, post 9/11. I think it is important for us to ask ourselves this; is it possible that our government is capable of what the Indians have been saying that they are capable of for a very long time? If you think that these are important issues, I urge you to watch this documentary, and to read books by Leonard Peltier, and others who were part of the movement. Look at the history of AIM, and the people who were there and lived their lives in the midst of what was going on in the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. All you have to do is Google Leonard Petier and you will see that there is an enormous amount of information out there; including the FBI web page that states their case in the deaths of FBI agents Coler and Williams. I strongly urge you to review the evidence from both sides. It may seem like an over whelming task, and it is. Leonard Peltier has been in prison for 30 years now and I'm not sure that we really know exactly what happened that day on June 26, 1975 at the Jumping Bull camp. More recently, one of the murders of Anna Mae Aquash Pictou has been sent to prison and another has the US pursuing extradition from Canada. There have been aqusations among AIM members, and sad days for the Indian communities. Read more ›
