OP/ED: Freedom of the press in Indian Country

With freedom of the press under attack by Donald Trump and his minions nearly every day how was it for freedom of the press in 1982? Tim Giago, the then editor of the Lakota Times, wrote some scathing editorials condemning the violence and confrontational tactics of the American Indian Movement. For his honesty in speaking out against violence and for promoting communication and peaceful dialogue his newspaper had its windows blasted out by gunfire three times and in December of 1982 the newspaper was firebombed with Molotov cocktails.
