Leonard Peltier Walk for Human Rights Atlanta Events


A group of American Indians led by Dorothy Ninham (Oneida) together with other supporters of clemency for Leonard Peltier left San Francisco in December, walking across the country to Washington DC with the goal of “advancing the economic social and cultural rights of all people,” as well as drawing attention to the case of this American Indian Movement leader and political prisoner since 1976. Members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee (NC) and Indian communities in Alabama will join the marchers on April 19 in North Georgia, where they will camp before moving to the grounds of the Arts Exchange in East Atlanta on April 23. Among the people attending events are Peltier’s granddaughter and her children.
