MSPIFF: Kevin McKiernan returns

Posted at 11:27 AM on April 24, 2009 by Euan Kerr

During the standoff at Wounded Knee in 1973 Minnesota Public Radio listeners heard the voice of Kevin McKiernan describing what was going on inside the compound. He was a film cameraman who agreed to cover the siege in exchange for press credentials which would get him through the FBI lines.

Some of the footage he shot is included in the final program of the "We Shall Remain" series on PBS. The film is being shown Saturday at the Minneapolis St Paul International Film Festival. McKiernan and members of the American Indian Movement will introduce the film.

Today he returned to MPR to talk with ATC host Tom Crann. You can hear their conversation tonight on the show, and then later on-line.
