Loud Hawk: The United States versus the American Indian Movement is the story of a criminal case that began with the arrest of six members of the American Indian Movement in Portland, Oregon, in 1975. The case did not end until 1988, after thirteen years of pretrial litigaion. It stands as the longest pretrial case in U.S. history.

This is a dramatic story of people and of government abuse of the legal system, of judicial courage and bone-chilling bigotry. It is an insider’s view of the legal process and of the conditions in Indian country that led up to and followed Wounded Knee.
