“South Dakota is a very racist state, I am sure I will be sent up even though it is my first arrest… I knew that it would come… My efforts to raise the consciousness of Whites that are so against Indians here in the United States were bound to be stopped by the FBI…”

– Anna Mae Pictou Aquash,Warrior of the Mi’kmaq Nation and the American Indian Movement, in a letter to her sister Rebecca Julian, after her November 1975 arrest in Oregon by State Troopers acting on FBI information

[Published in the book “The Life and Death of Anna Mae Aquash” by Johanna Brand, 1978]
