about

This first book-length biography of Akwesasne Mohawk activist Richard Oakes explores his life, untimely death, and enduring impact on the Red Power movement during the 1960s. Oakes’s pivotal role in the Alcatraz takeover and, more broadly, the cause of Native American self-determination continues to shape modern Indigenous politics.
Kent Blansett, a Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Shawnee, and Potawatomi descendant, is associate professor of Indigenous studies and history at the University of Kansas.
