Anna Mae Aquash (also Anna Mae Pictou Aquash or Anna Mae Pictou; first name also spelled Annie Mae; Mi’kmaq name Naguset Eask) (March 27, 1945 – mid-December 1975) was a Mi’kmaq activist from Nova Scotia who became a prominent member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) during the early 1970s. She was found murdered in 1976 on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and is sometimes seen as a martyr of the Red power and indigenous peoples resistance movement. She was born in Indian Brook, Nova Scotia, Canada and was thirty years old at the time of her death.
This Wikipedia page is well organized and has much more but depending on who you talk too is biased against AIM and does not hold the FBI accountable for their actions or rather it is dedicated to the FBI version of Anna Mae’s death. It is however good for general reference.
Friend of Anna Mae Aquash, journalist and advocate of Native American Issues. She also worked for the Wounded Knee Legal Defense/Offense Committee.
