1/1/09: The Unquiet Grave

Salt Lake City, UT – In 1976, a woman's body was found on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and buried in a pauper's grave. She was later identified as Anna Mae Aquash, a luminary in the American Indian Movement. After exhumation, a second autopsy revealed she had died from a gun-shot wound rather than "exposure" as originally reported by the FBI. In his new book, "The Unquiet Grave," author Steve Hendricks starts with Aquash's death and follows the complicated struggle between the FBI and the Indians in the 1970s. He successfully sued the government for thousands of never-before-released documents, and joins Doug Monday to share what he learned about the Indian rights movement and the government's response to it.
