"Debra White Plume, a prominent Native American activist who faced down
police bullets, uranium mining companies and oil pipeline projects in
trying to protect the traditional Oglala Lakota way of life, died on
Nov. 10 in Rapid City, S.D. She was 66.
The cause was cancer, which was found in her lungs and abdomen,
according to her husband, Alex White Plume.
In 1973, Ms. White Plume was among the first people to join the American
Indian Movement’s occupation of Wounded Knee, on the Pine Ridge
Reservation in southwest South Dakota, over demands that the U.S.
government respect its treaties with Indigenous tribes from the 19th and
early 20th centuries."
