AIM could not have existed without funding and support from certain quarters of the US government.
After years of denials from both the American Indian Movement (AIM) and the FBI, now the truth is exposed with the release of the book "American Indian Mafia" by Joseph Trimach/ FBI agent, clearly stating in April 2006, that the US government has supported and funded the actions of AIM's vast history of overt criminal destruction of the BIA Offices in DC, the town and people of Wounded Knee, abuse and murder of their own people, and others without any legal accountability, or justice for the victims. This includes the murders of Anna Mae Aquash and Ray Robinson, both activists and present during the Seige of Wounded Knee in 1973, just to name a few.
One must ask, since this information has become available almost 4 years ago, why no arrests have been made of the top AIM members, or why John "Boy" Graham's trial continues to be postponed, and now the federal charges against him are dropped, with only state charges remaining? Or why a current high ranking Canadian official, tried to prevent Graham's extradition from Canada to the US for the Aquash murder, when Aquash was a Canadian by birth???
Is there a reason why, after this admission by the FBI, the American Indian Movement is still allowed by the media, as agents for the government, to continue to rewrite native history for their/AIM's own profit? Currently there has been a suit filed by Floyd Hand Jr, a longstanding Lakota AIM member, against the Sedona Group, in which several people died as a result of too many people in an Inipi (sweat lodge), and lack of care, naming Arthur Ray, the Sedona Land owners and the US government accountable. The real reason behind the suit is obvious to anyone who knows first hand AIM's counter intelligence tactics.
This is not about the issues stated in the suit, but for AIM, as agents for the government, and the US government itself, to revoke the Freedom of Religion Act for Native Americans, and implement a law requiring a permit from the US government to pray or hold native ceremony.
