Native American activist and American Indian Movement member Leonard Peltier was convicted of the murder of two FBI agents in 1977 and sentenced to two life terms in prison. Lack of evidence and the obstruction of a key Native American shooting witness to testify has led to the large controversy regarding this case and many support groups to free Leonard Peltier, including the upcoming Bring Leonard Peltier Home concert, backs this cause. Musical artists such as country rock singer Jackson Browne, folk rock artist Bruce Cockburn, Native American singers Jennifer Kreisberg and Bill Miller, and other folk and Native American musicians will perform at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan on Dec. 14.
