In a time of great struggle on the reservations, when the American Indian Movement fought for justice and the FBI fought for control…
Alex Turning Hawk, an Oglala Lakota medicine-man-in-training, and his wife, Tate, battle a night-stalking killer, the FBI, and their own Lakota neighbors. It all starts with Tate. Driving in a blizzard, she is led by a ghost hitchhiker to find the body of a friend—her hands cut off—hands tattooed with the words, “Red Power.”
