Native Occupation of Alcatraz
The Native American Occupation of Alcatraz Island began on November 20, 1969. At about 2 a.m., nearly eighty American Indians from more than twenty tribes pulled up to the island's eastern shore in three boats, and the island of Alcatraz was occupied until June 11, 1971. We talk with Robert Free Galvin and Lenny Foster, veterans of the Alcatraz movement, and also hear audio from Indian Land Radio, and other recordings made during the occupation.
