Oglala youths hold an upside-down flag---an international symbol of distress and an act of defiance toward the U.S. government---at a rally to commemorate a shoot-out between American Indian Movement (AIM) activists and FBI agents. Two agents and one AIM member died; AIM's Leonard Peltier was jailed for life. THE OGLALA SIOUX TRIBE OF PINE RIDGE CALL THEMSELVES THE OGLALA LAKOTA. THEIR FLAG IS OPPOSITE, TOP. THEY ARE ONE OF SEVERAL GROUPS THAT MAKE UP THE SIOUX NATION. "SIOUX" COMES FROM THE NAME USED FOR THEM BY THEIR ALGONQUIAN SPEAKING ENEMIES AND ADAPTED BY FRENCH TRADERS.
