ARCHIE HOFFMAN: I guess he did check into the Fort Reno property and found out about all that gas and oil under Fort Reno. So he seen money there, about $50 million. He wanted us to sign a contract giving him 10 percent of that, and he'd get that property back for us. And he said, but if we didn't do that, he said he'd make sure we never got that property back, you know?

BILL MOYERS: "They want the land given back to them on a platter," Landow told FRONTLINE when he refused an on-camera interview. "They brought in innocent people like me. They're a bunch of goddamn uneducated Indians."

RICHARD GRELLNER: He started out that, you know, "I didn't have the ability to get this done for the tribe." That evolved into, "If you don't do this, I'll make sure you don't get it back." So we were kind of in a position that, you know, of what became a stickler of a situation became a stick-up.
