Growing up with a conspicuous last name wasn’t easy for the son of imprisoned Native American activist Leonard Peltier. Chauncey Peltier was just a boy when, in 1975, his father was embroiled in a shootout on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota that ended the lives of Joe Stuntz, a member of the American Indian Movement (AIM), and two federal agents, Jack R. Coler and Ronald A. Williams.
