Amy Mathews Amos did her homework and it showed yesterday as she asked hard hitting questions to Dennis Banks, living legend and co-founder of the American Indian Movement (AIM).
Her interview questions covered AIM and the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee; legislation and assimilation; racism and police brutality; "Longest Walks;" reversing Diabetes; The Gathering and more.
She also interviewed his son Tatanka Banks, Curt Hansen and Chris and Rene' White for the upcoming issue of The Observer Magazine.
Dennis Banks is Co-Master of Ceremonies for The Gathering, a historic Native American Indian / Virginia Gourd Festival scheduled for Clarke County Fairgrounds Oct. 30 - Nov. 1, 2015.
The Magazine article is expected to hit the news stands by Oct. 16.
Thank you to The Observer Amy Mathews Amos, Jennifer Welliver and David Lillard for Letting the Spirit of The Gathering Catch You.
