Chapter One traces the origins of the American Indian Movement to multiple historical sources: the consequences of U.S. settler colonialism in the upper Midwest since 1830; the legacy of the federal boarding schools; the development and activism of the Twin Cities Indian community since 1900; the conditions of urban Indian life in the Twin Cities since 1945; the influence of civil rights and empowerment movements in the 1960s; and the personal experiences of key AIM founders and organizers. This chapter also describes some of AIM’s early community activism in the Twin Cities between 1968 and 1972.
