From the Paper:

"Through her involvement with AIM, Mary would participate in the occupation of the BIA building in Washington D.C. and the second Wounded Knee in 1973, where her son would be born in the 'traditional Indian way.' This event empowered Mary and her life really began to change. It was when her husband was imprisoned that she found herself as a true advocate and a voice for her cause. People, formidable people, came to her aide. In New York she made speeches and met with ambassadors and heads of state. No longer was she a victim or a lowly woman. Mary Crow Dog was (and is) a powerful woman."
