This was a look back at President Nixon’s reforms of Native American government policies that led to the restoration of Indian lands and inaugurated a new era of self-government. His administration is credited with being one of the most pro-Indian of the 20th century -- and that was at a time of increasing Indian activism, including the 1969 occupation of San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island by Native Americans declaring they were reclaiming their land. Featured speakers included former administration officials who helped craft and enact these new policies. This 2012 video was provided by the Richard Nixon Foundation. close
