Alcatraz 50 years on

Alcatraz 50 years on

“The People’s Home, encapsulates the events that occurred in 1969 and during the 19-month occupation, and chronicles the ceremony that took place 50 years later. “
“Robert Free who was one of the original occupiers, raised a tipi on the island in 1969. This became the symbol for the movement in pursuit of self determination. On the 50th anniversary of these events, Free, accompanied by indigenous youth journey back to Alcatraz Island, raise a tipi to honor those who ignited the movement and conduct a ceremony to pass the responsibility of continuing the pursuit of self-determination and justice to the youth.”
