Madonna Thunder Hawk with Hector Soto
Introduction by Anna

Madonna Thunder Hawk (Two Kettle Lakota) one of the original members of the American Indian Movement (AIM), is a veteran of every modern Native American struggle, from the occupation of Alcatraz to the siege of Wounded Knee. This will be an opportunity to hear from this movement elder about her lifelong experience as an activist and her current organizing work with the Lakota People’s Law Project.

The Lakota Peoples Law Project (LPLP)is working in South Dakota to stop the illegal seizure of Indian children by the Department of Social Services. South Dakota, second only to Alaska, leads the nation in the number of Indian children removed from their homes; and 2/3 of all children placed in foster care in this state are Native American. Placed in non-Indian homes, the children are often subjected to sexual and physical abuse, medical over-drugging and inadequate education. In South Dakota 60% of Native American children who have been in the foster care system wind up drug addicted, incarcerated or dead by age 20.
