ALA Booklist
Opening with the 2016 protest against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline through sacred Standing Rock Sioux tribal grounds, this entry in the Movements That Matter series (4 titles) traces the history of the American Indian rights movement. Complemented by archival photographs, it continues with an overview of how the U.S. government stripped American Indians of their land, rights, and culture. Although American Indians resisted from the beginning, the text focuses on the movement in the 1960s and 70s, when activists began holding large public protests. As it discusses the movement's key concerns, including education and land issues, the book also introduces its leaders and historic protests, such as the occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. Other sections address sports mascots, the environment, and the future of American Indian rights.
