1976
January 16, 1976:
Banks arrested in California at Lee Brightman's, in a staged event, according to KaMook Nichols who was then his wife. Bank's later blames an FBI informant for turning him in. Bank's is allegedly interesting in obtaining the political clemency that political supporters of Governor Jerry Brown says he is willing to provide to Bank's regarding South Dakota attempts to extradite him. Banks, not wanting to turn himself without the media present calls police and the media to report his where abouts leading to a raid on the home with television cameras on hand. Frank Blackhorse in cuffs February 6, 1976:
Leonard Peltier is arrested in Hinton, Alberta Canada with Frank Black Horse, also known as Frank DeLuca, Bruce Johnson, Richard Leon High Eagle, Richard Tall Bull, Mike Houston, Teddy Louis and Teddy Lewis according to police records. One of Leonard Peltier's defense lawyers, Michael Kuzma in a December 2006 video presentation now on uTube, made a public plea regarding wanting to find Frank Blackhorse because of allegations that he was allowed to remain in Canada (and the U.S. dropped attempted murder charges from Wounded Knee 73, and the shooting of FBI agent Curtis Fitzgerald against him) because of an alleged immunity from prosecution agreement of some kind. This has led to speculation about his role in the Peltier arrest and other activities within AIM. Blackhorse was named a suspect in the RESMURS case itself on the same day Peltier and he made the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List.

FBI Informant A tells FBI that Banks is in the state of Oregon with the Marlon Brando motor home. Annie Mae tells friends she wants to leave and go to Canada but is not allowed too. KaMook Banks in the CBC - Fifth Estate special says that Annie Mae is along on the trip to be watched because Dennis Banks, and Leonard Peltier “don't trust her, and believe she is working in some capacity as an informant.” David Hill, sometimes also called the "AIM Bomber" because of his expertise is also considered another AIM significant that believed that Annie Mae was an informant.   Early November:
FBI Informant A notifies FBI, that Banks is at John Chiquiti residence on the Port Madison Indian Reservation in Washington State.
