    ************ ********* ******

    Leonard Peltier -- a warrior, great-grandfather, artist, writer, &

    Indigenous rights activist -- is a citizen of the Anishinabe and

    Dakota/Lakota Nations who has been unjustly imprisoned since 1976. A

    participant in the American Indian Movement, he went to assist the

    Oglala Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the mid-70s

    where a shoot-out occurred on June 26, 1975. Falsely accused and

    framed up for the murder of two agents of the Federal Bureau of

    Investigation (FBI), Peltier fled to Canada believing he would never

    receive a fair trial in the United States. On February 6, 1976,

    Peltier was apprehended by the government of Canada, a historical

    accomplice to the US government in the genocide of Indigenous people.

    Bob Robideau and Dino Butler, who were also involved in the shoot-out,

    were found not guilty on the grounds of self-defense. With fabricated

    evidence, the FBI collaborated with Canadian authorities to have

    Leonard extradited to the US for the deaths of the two agents.

    Although to this day, state prosecutors have admitted that they don't

    know who killed the agents, Leonard has been serving out a sentence

    twice his natural life in prison.

    31 years later, Leonard Peltier's case is still a burning question. 31

    years later and the fight for his freedom continues.

    This speaking tour will focus on the history of Leonard's case and the

    recent developments that are re-energizing the campaign for his
