AMERICAN INDIAN RIGHTS. Canada endorsed in recent days the United Nations' Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, leaving the United States as the sole vote against it in the world. On the eve of Thanksgiving Day, this edition offers an extensive interview with a leader of the American Indian Movement who has been lobbying for 30 years for the protocol. He talks about the Thanksgiving holiday, the occupation of Alcatraz, and his journey from a Chicano to an Indian militant.
