Alcatraz Is Not An Island | Rebel Film Night: Incite/Insight | SoMa

“Alcatraz Is Not An Island” (2001), 69 min, dir. James M. Fortier
November 15

In November 1969 a small group of Native American students and urban Indians began the occupation of Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay. Eventually joined by thousands of Native Americans, they reclaimed “Indian land” for the first time since the 1880s, forever changing the way Native Americans viewed themselves, their culture and their sovereign rights. Their occupation of public space as a political statement was in a way a precursor to the Occupy Movement, and the ensuing saga contains lessons for organizers today.
