Academic America continues to Valorize those who have put many people on a path to self destruction.
*** James Abourezk ***
father of Charles Abourezk
Arlo Looking Cloud stated at Marshall’s trial, court documents show that the now South Dakota Supreme Court Judge, & son of James Abourezk, former Senator of South Dakota, Charles Abourezk was at AIM leader, Russell Means brother, Bill Means home the night before Aquash-Pictou was executed & raped by Graham…
While the trio of Rios, Graham & Looking Cloud were on their way to Marshall’s home to pick up the gun used by Graham to execute Aquash-Pictou after raping her, & Charles Abourezk did nothing to prevent Aquash-Pictous execution or rape-beating on the orders of AIM leadership.
According to the testimony of Cleo Clifford Marshall Gates. Aquash was given coffee and a donut while Dick Marshall, Looking Cloud and Graham had a conversation in the back room of their Allen, South Dakota home. According to accounts of the evening attributed to Dick Marshall, Aquash was also given a change of clothes.
Aquash was shot several hours later as the sun rose in Wanblee, South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
in 2008 Marshall is found not guilty with aid and abet in the murder of Annie Mae Aquash
*** Dennis Banks ***
* who knew the Jane Doe was Annie Mae 2 weeks prior to FBI release of identity and that she had a bullet in her head before the 2nd autopsy / as per testimony from John Trudell and Ka-mook Nicholas (Banks ex wife)
* who also says he knows nothing of Perry Ray Robinson;
According to Bernie Lafferty and KaMook Nichols, several AIM leaders attending a meeting at the Wounded Knee house/office of Dennis Banks discuss what to do with Robinson’s body, eventually selecting Christ (Chris/Cris) Westerman, the younger brother of Floyd Westerman to take the body out and bury it, near Wounded Knee Creek, near several other bodies that Leonard Crow Dog indicated were victims of the Wounded Knee 1973 occupation.
Other people who have either confirmed the presence of Robinson inside Wounded Knee and/or details about his death and/or burial inside Wounded Knee are Allen (Crazy Al) Cooper, Carter Camp, Richard Two Elk, Dennis Banks, Marlette Thunder Horse, Leonard Crow Dog, Sandra Brim, Frank Black Horse, Keith Demaras, Cheryl Buzwell-Robinson, Robert Anderson, Johnny Flynn, KaMook Ecoffey, Hank Adams, Associated Press reporter, Carson Walker, Catherine Martin, Jeanne Davies, Barb Nixon, Derek Whirlwind, the late Stanley Hollow Horn, the late Matthew King, the late Jannie Waller, the late Vernon Bellecourt, the late Barbara Deming, the late John Carmichael and the book author Steve Hendricks.

*** Clyde Bellcourt ***
* who says he knows nothing of Perry Ray Robinson;
“I had to make the decision not to bring in Buddy Lamont until late afternoon after I knew he was killed in the early morning. I had to leave Ray’s life to fight alone in eagle bunker after he was shot through both legs. I did these things to save other Indian lives.”
