Strategies of the American Indian Movement
The main strategy for the AIM was attracting press. AIM would set up protests and marches to get the press to follow, so that they were able to broadcast their problems, and what they were fighting for. On Thanksgiving Day, 1970, AIM seized the replica of the Mayflower in Boston, and another time, they occupied Mt Rushmore in protest. One of the marches was called "The Longest Walk", in which the AIM lead the spiritual walk across the country, to Washington D.C., in support of tribal sovereignty and bring attention to anti-Indian legislation.
