Description

In June of 1967, the court of Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, was assaulted by armed men under the command of Chicano leader Reies Lopez Tijerina. The outcome of such bold action was the largest manhunt in the recent history of the United States. Tijerina managed to survive prison, a psychiatric hospital, and a several assassination attempts. The Chicano movement faded away, and everyone thought the same of Tijerina. People speak of him as a saint, a man illuminated, a man that used violence looking for a fair cause. They called him King Tiger; though, King Tiger is alive and he wants to tell his story.
