American Indian Movement Stands with Foreclosed Anishinabe Homeowner | The UpTake
Activist Troy Amlee, a Lakota whose native name is White Horse Warrior, responded to a request from Occupy Homes MN to meet with an Anishinabe woman, Anita Reyes-LeRey, whose south Minneapolis home had been foreclosed upon by Woodlands National Bank, even though she thought she had a deal to rent the home and then acquire a new mortgage two years later. Reyes-LeRey was four minutes late in calling the bank to finalize the agreement, and the deal was cancelled.
Amlee is a member of the American Indian Movement (AIM). AIM was involved last year with the Occupy movement, but had ceased until he skateboarded to Reyes-LeRey’s home. “So now I’m thinking that this could mend the threads that have been broken so to speak,” he said.
