Beloved Dead, and all those who have crossed over. As we mourn for  
those we love who have died this year, we also mourn the losses and  
pain suffered by the Earth, our Mother. Yet even as we grieve we also  
remember and honor the sacred cycle of life, death, rebirth and  
regeneration, celebrating the births of our children born this year,  
and our own vital connections to the Earth and each other, in which we  
ground our hope. more...

Peltier Story"
ATA 992 Valencia St. at 21st
In 1974, two FBI agents were killed in a gun battle on the Pine Ridge  
reservation. Leonard Peltier, a leader of the American Indian Movement  
(AIM) was falsely convicted of the murders, although critical evidence  
proved his innocence. Peltier's arrest and trial were politically  
motivated shams. This exciting documentary reconstructs events  
surrounding the incident, highlighting the overwhelming FBI repression  
and atmosphere of government terror on the reservation. It also shows  
the viewer the brave efforts of American Indians like Peltier to  
organize and fight back. Free Leonard Peltier!
