The Native Americans demanded reparation for the many treaties broken by the US government and for the lands that were taken from so many tribes.

Home Browse Books Book details, The American Indian Occupation of Alcatraz. Although Native Americans have been a popular topic among journalists for many years, only recently have scholars turned to serious studies of their cultures since World War II. Troy Johnson's work is one of the first to address the Indian militancy of the late 1960s and early 1970s. in his focus upon the 1969 occupation of Alcatraz Island, he makes it clear that this was one of the cornerstone events in modern Indian history.

The occupation of Alcatraz Island represents the longest continuous occupation of a federal facility by any minority group in US history. Alcatraz set in motion a wave of overtly nationalist Indian militancy that ultimately resulted in abandonment of the US government's policy of termination and the adoption of a policy of Indian self-determination. This publication commemorates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Alcatraz occupation and presents poetry and political statements written by Indian people during the occupation or in commemoration of the event.
