Is this a sign?
Could this have something to do with the mysterious boom sounds happening everywhere?

DeMeyer has received many awards from the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA), including:
- Incident at Oglala: The Leonard Peltier Story (1992) is a documentary by Michael Apted about Peltier narrated by Robert Redford. The film argues in favour of the assertion that the government’s prosecution of Peltier was unjust and politically motivated.
- Thunderheart (1992) is a fictional movie by Michael Apted, partly based on Peltier’s case but with no pretense to accuracy.
