The Alcatraz Logbook: Signs of Red Power (Autry Museum of the American West)

Autry Museum of the American West: The Alcatraz Logbook: Signs of Red Power . “On November 20, 1969, a group of Native Americans landed and occupied Alcatraz Island for 19 months. The initial group of over eighty occupiers referred to themselves as ‘Indians of All Tribes’ reflecting the diversity of Native Americans in the Bay Area during this time period…Much of the history of the occupation and its key players have been recorded elsewhere, but one key element of the story has been missing. A logbook of those who visited the island exists and is presented here to the public for the first time.”
