Sal Serbin, White Horse, will be with us on New Years Day. Sal is the host of WSLR’s Indigenous Sounds on Monday nights, and he’ll be our guest on the Peace and Justice Report this Wednesday, Jan 1, 2020 at 9am. Sal is an Assiniboine/Sioux whose grandfather was in the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. We’ll talk about past and present fights for justice for Native Americans.
The American Indian Movement (AIM) is a Native American grassroots movement that was founded in July 1968 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A.I.M. was initially formed in urban areas to address systemic issues of poverty and police brutality against Native Americans. A.I.M. soon widened its focus from urban issues to include many Indigenous Tribal issues that Native American groups have faced due to settler colonialism of the Americas, such as treaty rights, high rates of unemployment, education, cultural continuity, and preservation of Indigenous cultures.
