We are Still Here: a Photographic History of the American Indian Movement. (David Bancroft, 2013.)

The photographs of activist Dick Bancroft, a key documentarian of AIM, provide a stunningly intimate view of this major piece of American history from 1970 to 1981. Veteran journalist Laura Waterman Wittstock, has interviewed a host of surviving participants to tell the stories behind the images.

The Dakota Prisoner of War Letters. (Clifford Canku and Michael Simon, 2013.)

In April 1893, after the Dakota-U.S. War of 1862, 270 Dakota men were moved from Mankato, Minnesota to a prison camp (Camp Kearney) in Davenport, Iowa.
