ALCATRAZ IS NOT AN ISLAND

In November 1969, a small group of Native American students and urban Indians began the occupation of Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay. Eventually joined by thousands of Native Americans, they reclaimed "Indian land" for the first time since the 1800s, forever changing the way Native Americans viewed themselves, their culture, and their sovereign rights.
