American Indian Movement (AIM) was founded on this day in 1968 in Minneapolis to address various issues concerning the Native American urban community in Minneapolis, including poverty, housing, treaty issues, and police harassment. In October 1971 AIM gathered members from across the country to a protest in Washington, D.C. known as the “Trail of Broken Treaties.” AIM gained national attention when it seized the Bureau of Indian Affairs national headquarters and presented a 20-point list of demands to the federal government. In 1973 it led a 71-day standoff with federal forces at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
