Reclamation at Stoney Point, Part 1
Bonnie Bressette was only five years old when a truck came to Stoney Point, and she watched as her house was loaded up onto the truck to be taken away. Her father explained the government was taking their land to build an army base but promised to return it after the war. Legally, the government had to. They didn’t.
In Episode 1, we hear from three generations of Stoney Pointers about how every system failed them. They explain their longing to rebuild their community and what led them to take over a military base in 1993.
The episode is in memory of Anthony “Dudley” George.
In this podcast: interviews include Bonnie Bressette, Caroline “Cully” George, Pierre George and Kevin Simon
