Indian Journalist Paul DeMain Reports that the American Indian Movement (AIM) Murdered 13 People During Their "Reign of Terror"

Read about the American Indian Movement's reign of terror at Joseph and John Trimbach's American Indian Mafia and AIM Myth Busters.

"Clyde Bellecourt, Russell, Bill, and Ted Means, Lorelie DeCora, Madonna Gilbert Thunderhawk, Attorney Bruce Ellison, Troy Lynn Irving and her auntie Theda Nelson Clark...may still be indicted...Justice will only be served when those in AIM leadership/security roles are brought to justice for the manipulation and orders they gave others to do their dirty work"--Paul DeMain

On October 6, 2008, John Graham will go on trial for the 1975 murder of Anna Mae Aquash [See Aquash - NFIC Files/Articles here].

News from Indian Country now reports that another man has been indicted [See press release (8-26-08)] in connection with the Aquash murder:

On August 20, the U.S Indicted Richard "Dick" Marshal for aiding and abetting her murder.

The discredited professor Ward Churchill once wrote in the KGB-sponsored Covert Action Information Bulletin that FBI-backed death squads murdered 342 Indians. This was nothing but a BIG LIE. Ward Churchill has depicted Russell Means and other old leaders of the American Indian Movement (AIM) as heroes. In fact, some AIM leaders were not heroes but criminals. Their goal was to tear down the reputation of the FBI, not to lift up Indians. Richard Marshall, who was Russell Means' bodyguard in 1975, has now been indicted for aiding and abetting the murder of Anna Mae Aquash. He is the third person charged in connection with her murder. Arlo Looking Cloud has already been convicted, and John Graham goes on trial October 6.

Paul DeMain, the editor of News from Indian Country, writes that Native American investigative journalists have now identified 13 people murdered the American Indian Movement (AIM) during the 1970s:

[I]t has always been hard for me to get off the subject of justice for victims of the American Indian Movement that were murdered in the 1970s because of revolutionary fever and paranoia. Two of the thirteen victims Native investigative journalists have identified include Black civil rights worker and Martin Luther King disciple Perry Ray Robinson Jr., and Micmac mother Annie Mae Pictou Aquash.

As the federal government prepares for the trial of John Boy Patton Graham on October 6 in Rapid City, South Dakota, I note a few things. Only one other man, Arlo Looking Cloud has been convicted and is now serving a life sentence to being Party to 1st Degree Murder.

While Dennis Banks basks in the sun of his latest Longest Walk in Honor of Mother Earth and All Living Things, I often wonder if he ever thinks of the former mistress he allegedly conspired to have executed as a traitor and possible FBI pig – while some Native and non-Native media hold him up as some kind of “hero” in our community.

The trial of John Boy Graham, and other AIM leaders and affiliates like Clyde Bellecourt, Russell, Bill, and Ted Means, Lorelie DeCora, Madonna Gilbert Thunderhawk, Attorney Bruce Ellison, Troy Lynn Irving and her auntie Theda Nelson Clark that may still be indicted, can’t happen fast enough for vetting of information and transparency.

Even Leonard Peltier, the last ranking AIM security enforcer not to have a verifiable location on December 9-13, 1975 has to be concerned about what may become public, beyond his already waning claims of innocence.

But justice will not be served when just the gang of three, Arlo, John Boy and Theda Clark, those who moved against Aquash are behind bars. Justice will only be served when those in AIM leadership/security roles are brought to justice for the manipulation and orders they gave others to do their dirty work, and are forced to concede their roles. Only then will justice be served, and even then it is a hollow replacement for the Robinson, Aquash and other families watching others enjoy the freedom of major movie roles, or nice long walks.

I did not write that AIM murdered MLK. I wrote that AIM murdered Perry Ray Robinson, a follower of King.

Robinson went there to advise the Indians. He got into a disagreement with them and was shot.

AIM "rights activists" also raped a little Indian girl, and raped and killed a lot of other people.

You probably read too much Ward Churchill. He got his start writing lies for the KGB propaganda.

We are soon having trials of many of Anna Mae's killers. A lot of these lies happened because people were trying to hide their guilt.

They just arrested Thelma Rios. She was David Hill's wife and the lawyer Ellison's girlfriend.

I would like to see the (white communist) lawyers finally have to answer for their crimes against Anna Mae.

Anna Mae may have been killed in December 1975 because she heard Peltier brag about killing the two FBI agents the previous summer.

We know about this because Ka-Mook Banks and her sister were also there. Ka-Mook was the wife of Dennis Banks. Ka-Mook testified in court at Arlo Looking Cloud's trial about what Peltier said. She was very young when she married banks and didn't understand what he was.

A lot of people are complicit in the murder of Anna Mae. One is convicted and three have been arrested.

I think there will be many more.

I hope they will also catch the people who killed Ray Robinson during the take over of Wounded Knee in 1973.
