GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN — Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement, will be in suburban Grand Rapids to sign copies of “A Good Day to Die: The Movement that Started a Revolution and Inspired a Nation” documentary film at the Paul Collins Art Gallery on Saturday and Sunday, March 21st and March 22nd.

Good Day to DieBanks recently returned from Japan is in Grand Rapids to conduct business and visit some surrounding Michigan American Indian tribes.

The film presents an intimate look at Banks’ life beginning with his early experience in boarding schools, through his military service in Japan, his transformative experience in Stillwater State Prison and subsequent founding of a movement that, through confrontational actions in Washington DC, Custer South Dakota and Wounded Knee, changed the lives of American Indians forever.

Good Day to Die CoverA “Best Picture” winner of several film festivals, “A Good Day to Die” recounts the events of Banks life leading up to and including the 71-day siege by the American Indian Movement of Wounded Knee in 1973.

“We should love lose sight of the fact the United States has been staging an undeclared war against American Indian throughout for centuries. Certainly, during the Wounded Knee takeover, it was as if the feds declared war on us,” Banks told Native News Online on Wednesday. “The undeclared war continues even today, especially in the court system.”

“A Good Day to Die” was produced by Lynn Salt (Choctaw).
