To this day, supporters say Peltier is being held as a political prisoner, punished for his role in the American Indian Movement. 

Now his son Chauncey, an Oregon resident, is ignoring his father's advice to avoid the legal morass surrounding Peltier senior.  Chauncey curates and sells the artwork his father creates in prison. 

Peltier junior joins us with tales of his work, and his thinking about his father's case and fate.
