Honoring the passing of a Warrior: An Interview with Dennis Banks (2009)

October 31, 2017

In light of the passing of AIM activist Dennis Banks, we wanted to honor him with re-posting an interview we conducted with him in 2009.

In this 4 part interview, Dennis talks about his own experience of being taken from his community by force and put into a boarding school, his involvement with the American Indian Movement, the siege at Wounded Knee and the future of Indigenous resistance. Dennis said in the 4th interview, “the US is headed in the direction of creating another Wounded Knee” and that future attacks on Indigenous people’s will focus on water and water rights. The ongoing struggle at Standing Rock confirms those two points.
