Peltier is a Native American, currently serving a life sentence in an American prison for the murder of two FBI agents on an Indian Reservation in South Dakota in 1975. He was a leader in the American Indian Movement, an organization intended to bring attention to abuses of Native Americans by the US Government and violations of treaties between the Native American tribes and the US Government. Amnesty International considers Peltier a political prisoner.
Peltier appears to be running for President, along with Barry Bachrach, his defense attorney, primarily to gain publicity for his personal situation. His campaign Website does not take positions on any major political issues.
