I would draw the readers attention to the five thirty four mark in the below video where Minnie Two Shoes in discussing the interrogation of Annie Mae Aquash by Leonard Peltier clearly states that she and Iris ThunderCloud had been likewise interrogated “by the same people”.
The obvious reference is to Peltier, Robideau, and Butler, Annie’s antagonists.
Minnie’s statement is inclusive, though she doesn’t specify who was the lead interrogator, but it seems reasonable to me to assume it was Peltier, who seemed to enjoy bullying women.
It is yet another example of how fraudulent the effort is to portray Peltier as something other than what he is, and that is mostly notably a proven liar, an errand boy, and a cheap thug.
I had the good fortune to meet Minnie a few times and engage in conversations with her. She was one of kind- a rapier like wit that could literally have you rolling on the floor accompanied by a depth of understanding and commitment that would rivet your attention-she was a good woman worthy of respect, a woman who cared deeply and not given to lying.
Occasionally someone will appear in what is known as blackface, a cosmetic application mimicking African Americans, a display assured to raise a hue and cry- I submit that the same hue and cry should be raised over the cosmetic makeover to portray Leonard Peltier as being a warrior or in any way representative of the beliefs of, or who the nations are.
Peltier has assumed a role, and had decades of coaching and rehearsal- it is a shabby performance at best riddled with his own miscues archived in interviews and videos across the internet and in the public domain.
