NIC to host presentation by civil rights organizer Clyde Bellecourt

Clyde Bellecourt, civil rights organizer and co-founder of the America Indian Movement (AIM), will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2 at North Idaho College. The Oyate Drum Group will perform before the presentation along with singing by students in the NIC American Indian Student Alliance.

Bellecourt co-founded AIM in 1968 in Minneapolis and was elected as its first chairman. He was a negotiator in the AIM-led occupation at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and a leader of the Trail of Broken Treaties march on Washington, D.C., in 1972. Bellecourt has devoted his life to dealing with issues such as discrimination, self-determination, education and civil rights issues.

The event is sponsored by NIC Diversity Events and the NIC American Indian Student Alliance. It is free and open to the public.
