9 Indigena Indigena: News From Indian America (Winter 1974-5, Vol. 1, No. 3)
Berkeley, CA Indigena, Inc. 1974 Newspaper Very good

(Later elected governor, Janklow successfully delayed the publication of Peter Matthiessen's groundbreaking work, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse). Another page is dedicated to a lengthy history of the 1866 Powder River War. Paper has moderate browning and edge wear, and--while delicate--can easily be read without further damage.
