Leonard Peltier born on september 12, 1944 In North Dakota, U.S. He was part of the American Indian Movement (AIM). Not only was he part of the AIM, but he was a leader. Leonard was arrested in 1977. He was blamed for “murdering two FBI agents”; witnesses say Leonard did not shoot them. But more than 60 members of the American Indian Movement were murdered. The reason why this conflict started was because of a 1975 argument about the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. In the court three teenaged native witnesses testified against Leonard.
