Leonard Peltier, a Native American of Anishinabe/ Lakota descent, gets up at 6:30 a.m. with the other prisoners in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Kansas. He eats when they eat and, like everyone else, has to be in his cell at 10:00 p.m. for the last countdown of the day. There is one distinct difference between Peltier and the other prisoners at Leavenworth - widespread solidarity outside the prison.
