Former FBI Special Agent in Charge, Joseph H. Trimbach, and his son John have published American Indian Mafia
, the long awaited correction to the historical record of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and the American Indian Movement (AIM) of the 1970s. For the first time, a primary source has documented the true history from that period and brought it up to date. Trimbach explains why AIM leaders ordered the execution of AIM member Anna Mae Aquash in 1975 and why the alleged trigger-man, John Graham, will finally be tried for murder in 2008. Trimbach also exposes the falsified history of Pine Ridge often found in libraries across America, such as the work of Professor Ward Churchill. Native journalist and publisher Tim Giago wrote that American Indian Mafia
??takes apart Peter Matthiessen?s In the Spirit of Crazy Horse
, movies like ?Thunderheart,? ?Lakota Woman,? and ?A Tattoo on My Heart - The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973,? and exposes them for the frauds that they are. It is refreshing to finally hear the other side of the story.?
From the razing of Wounded Knee village in 1973, to the real story behind convicted killer Leonard Peltier?s murderous rampage in 1975, Trimbach describes AIM?s destructive legacy from an observer?s point of view. Supported by thorough documentation, dozens of photographs, and never-before-published material, the Trimbach?s one-of-a-kind narrative and live presentations chronicle the victimization of a people sorely in need of spiritual and economic revival.
American Indian Mafia
concludes with prescriptive solutions for fighting a host of social ills that plague Pine Ridge. The Epilogue exposes rampant child sex abuse on the reservation, and what must be done to fight this evil. American Indian Mafia
promotes genuine Pine Ridge healing and will leave readers with a clear vision of a brighter future for the Lakota Sioux Indians.
