Native American canoes circle Alcatraz to honor 50 years since occupation – in pictures





Native American tribes from up and down the west coast came
together on the San Francisco Bay to celebrate Indigenous
Peoples’ Day on 14 October. Starting at dawn people rode
traditional tribal canoes around Alcatraz Island – the famous
former prison site which was
occupied by Native Americans
from 1969-71. This year marks the
50th anniversary of the historic act of resistance that launched
