SPEAKER'S BUREAU

Thank you for your interest in our Speaker's Bureau. We are willing to travel extensively, both domestically, and internationally, to meet people's needs. We ask for an honorarium to assist in our fundraising, as well as the covering of all expenses. We establish this on a case-by-case basis, considering many factors, such as purpose of engagement, and amount of travel. Please contact us for rates. The issues we are able to cover include the following:
  • The American Indian Movement, 1968-PRESENT A reaction to the numerous U. S. government programs directed at Indians, and designed to socially deconstruct Indian communities, as well as Indian sovereignty. Out of the Indian ghettos came men and women, mostly ex-convicts, who committed to take a stand. Like a hurricane, the tumultuous events that followed have re-written Indian history. As with many liberation organizations, AIM has had it's splinters and fractures. From Alcatraz, to Wounded Knee, to the Longest Walk, and beyond.
