Leonard Peltier is a member of the American Indian Movement (AIM), and was involved in the group in South Dakota. Like the Black Panthers, the group faced repression from the government, as part of its COINTELPRO campaign to destroy liberation movements in the US. He has been in prison since 1975 and was convicted in the deaths of two FBI agents although there is no evidence that Peltier killed them.
