Alcatraz Is Not An Island
  • English

In November 1969 a small group of Native American Students and urban Indians began the occupation of Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay. Eventually joined by thousands of Native Americans, they claimed "Indian land" for the first time since the 1880s, forever changing the way Native Americans viewed themselves, their culture, and their sovereign rights.
