An American Indian movement Activist (AIM), Peltier was imprisoned two decades ago on charges stemming from conflict with the FBI on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. During his years in prison, Peltier has been subjected to horrific conditions and treatment. He writes about those experiences as they were part of a sundance, a traditional American Indian ceremony in which unendurable sufferings are embraced as a spiritual testimony.
