In the Spirit of Crazy Horse! FREE LEONARD PELTIER NOW!
Robert E Robideau , member of the Turtle Mountain Ojibwa and White Earth Ojibwa tribes has been an AIM activist for more then 35 years, participated in the firefight on the Pine Ridge reservation in 1975. He was acquitted, along with Darell Butler, in the killing of two FBI agents in 1976 on grounds of self defense. Ever since 1976 Robert Robideau has worked for the freedom of his cousin Leonard Peltier. Robideau has served twice as the National-Internatio nal director of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee and currently is the Co director. He has been relentless in his pursuit of Peltier's freedom by telling Leonard's story to anyone who would listen and help. Along side his work for Peltier's release Robideau has never given up his activist work. In 1994 Robideau led a contingent of thirteen chapters of the American Indian Movement in denouncing the Minneapolis chapter of AIM (or National AIM) because that chapter was subverting the movement. This led to the creation of what is now known as the Autonomous Chapters of the American Indian Movement. He is a self taught artist, founder and director of the American Indian Museum in Barcelona, Spain, where much of his art work remains on display. An Inventory of the Robert E. Robideau's American Indian Movement Papers, 1975-2006 is housed in the achieves of The University of New Mexico, University Libraries, Center for Southwest Research.
