Portrait of John Trudell by Paul Kalkbrenner

John Trudell

Poet and songwriter John Trudell acted as National Spokesman when the Native American Indians of All Tribes occupied Alcatraz in 1963.
In 1979 John Trudell led a march to the FBI headquarters in Washington D.C., protesting against the FBI's war on Indians, and burned an American flag that he felt had been desecrated by racist and class injustice.
Approximately 12 hours later in the early morning hours, a fire "of suspicious origin" burned down Trudell's home on the Shoshone Paiute reservation in Nevada, killing his wife Tina, their three children, and Tina's mother.
