The book was thoughtfully written and was a very easy read. I was hoping it was going to be a biographical sketch of Anna Mae Aquash's life, but much of it read like a summary of The American Indian Movement, The Wounded Knee Occupation, FBI corruption in the 1960s and 1970s, and violence on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Although Anna Mae was involved in all of these themes of the time, very little was written about her work and involvement. The beginning and end of the book was a detailed description about Anna Mae and her life and death which was extremely sad. If you have never read about The American Indian Movement or the events that define much of it you will really like this book. If you are knowledgeable about those times, this book will leave you with empty questions and wanting to read more about Anna Mae herself. I feel another book needs to be written about her life that develops from where this book started.
If you are interested in the American Indian Movement and native uprisings in the late 60's/early 70's, this book is a must read. Anna Mae Aquash was a Micmac warrior from Nova Scotia. She joined the American Indian Movement at Wounded Knee in 1973. She was murdered in 1975 either by the Federal Government or AIM itself. However, two Native Americans were ultimately convicted of her murder. The net result is that you will want to read more and do further research if you're interested in this topic. No spoilers from me in this mini-review.
1971 and 1972, AIM set itself up perfectly to accomplish great for all American Indian people. Then, they lost focus, putting all their attention on the Pine Ridge Reservation, and lost it all. Anna Mae Aquash was a member of AIM who yearned to help make these changes, but with her death, AIM dissolved.
This is the best account of what happened. Other books have tried to explain it all, but this one covers every angle.
