PHILLIP DEERE
1929-1985

A Muskogee/Creek Elder who was active in the Native American movement and took part in National Native Rights activities as well as International Conferences and Forums.

THE LONGEST WALK, (42:00 min.s) recorded in a public forum Mar. 20, 1981 at Boulder, Colorado. In this speech the late Phillip Deere explains the basic reasoning for the American Indian Movement, as well his involvement in that movement.

"There was a time when even our own people pointed at one another and laughed at one another. Calling them old timish', when they talked about ceremonies and their dances. They were ashamed to dance, they were ashamed to be at a ceremony at one time. But today, the interest has grown.

The spiritual rebirth has come about. And it was these kind of movements that made it possible for this to happen. We gained the attention of the world, the world now knows, that there are Native People here."
