Richard Hellstern, a former deputy assistant U.S. Attorney General in the Nixon administration who helped negotiate a treaty for native Americans at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, passed away on November 26.

He is a former first assistant U.S. Attorney for New Jersey under Jonathan Goldstein and Robert DelTufo.

In 1973, about 200 members of the Lakota tribe seized the town of Wounded Knee in protest to the failed impeachment of the tribal president.  The protest lasted for 71 days.   Actor Marlon Brando declined to accept the Academy Award for Best Actor in The Godfather in protest to the way Native Americans were treated by the government.
