We listened to a presentation by a park service guide on the Occupation Of Alcatraz by the Indians of All Tribes that lasted for 19 months from 11/69 to 6/71. It was forcibly ended by the US government. The Occupation had a direct effect on federal Indian policy and established a precedent for Indian activism. Signs of the Occupation are still visible in the background of the building identification placard and on the water tower.
The views of the city from Alcatraz are spectacular.
Andrew joined us for dinner at a favorite restaurant in Chinatown. It was just wonderful to have both kids join me to celebrate my passage through San Francisco.
