Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash (1945–1975) in relation to Crime and Race

Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash (1945–1975) is included in the Encyclopedia of Race and Crime (1), beginning with: Anna Mae Pictou was born on March 27, 1945, in an Indian village near Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia, Canada. According to her daughters and others, Anna Mae holds a place in history as a committed advocate of Native rights, which ultimately led to her death at the young age of 30. During the tumultuous era of civil rights efforts, she encountered many risks. She was raised as a Micmac Indian, amid poverty and the racism she encountered at off-reservation schools she attended. She dropped out of high school after her freshman year and became a berry and potato harvester in Maine. At age 17, she and fellow Micmac Jake Maloney headed to Boston to make a life for themselves among other Micmacs who had settled there. Their daughters, Denise and Deborah, were born in 1964 and 1965, respectively.
