Activist LaNada War Jack of the Bannock Nation Details Her Time Occupying Alcatraz - Teen Vogue
for Native Americans today, Alcatraz represents a crucial moment in history as the site of an occupation that captured mass attention at a time when their livelihoods and cultures were badly threatened by ongoing “termination” policies. From 1953 through 1964, the federal government terminated the status of more than 100 tribes, withdrawing aid and services and confiscating millions of acres of Native land.

The prison shut down in 1963, and six years later, Alcatraz was claimed by Lakota activists under an 1868 treaty allowing Natives to appropriate surplus federal land. In 1969, a group of Native students stormed the island by boat, launching a 19-month occupation that sparked a chain reaction of Indigenous activism throughout the country. Often, men like Richard Oakes and Adam Nordwall have been credited with taking Alcatraz, yet women were vital every step of the way. Teen Vogue sat down with LaNada War Jack of the Bannock Nation (formerly LaNada Means) — who one Alcatraz vet called “the real leader of the occupation” — to dig deeper on this story.

The Pirate Radio Broadcaster Who Occupied Alcatraz and Terrified the FBI
In an interview with KPFA host Al Silbowitz in December 1969, Trudell sketched a portrait of life on the island and outlined the purpose of the occupation. While many watching from the shore had been amazed by the movement’s courage and ability to survive on the rocky island, Trudell wanted the non–Native American audience to know: This struggle was not unique to this moment. It was experienced daily by native tribes everywhere.

But what was unique, and urgent for all people to recognize, was that the activists’ intention with Alcatraz was to reshape the narrative and the oppressive course of history. As Trudell says in the interview, “Alcatraz is more than just a rock to us. It’s a stepping-stone to a better future. We have a chance to unite the American Indian people as they never had the opportunity to do.”
