Storyboard Text

  • OMG! What's happening to us Native Americans here in Minneapolis and in other cities is horrible! We are being harrassed by cops simply because we look different!
  • I agree. We need to do something about this! Let's start an international movement to promote our rights!
  • Wow, this movement is off to a really good start! We're helping members of our community in a very meaningful way! Something feels off to me though... it's like we're missing something...
  • I know what it is! We need to get some spiritual direction to give this movement a greater meaning, more than just helping out our friends. I know just where to go, too! I heard about this guy Crow Dog who is a fantastic guide for people out on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation. I bet he could help us out!
  • You have done great things over the past few years and it is my honor to support you going forward. This movement has the power to revive our Native identity and beliefs and to secure our tribal rights, redressing past wrongs and oppression. Now go forth and bring about this great chance, knowing that the spirits are on your side.
  • A caravan of Native Americans from AIM set out to Wounded Knee to not only commemorate the lives lost during the massacre, but also to make a stand against religious and political oppression. The group was led by Sioux spiritual leader and powerful AIM member Crow Dog.
  • After a 71 day standoff, AIM finally surrendered with very few casualties on either side. Though no legislation was passed directly due to this incident, almost all future legislation regarding Native American rights were noticeably redressed.
  • AIM is still active to this day, though it has been split into many regional cooperative factions.
