Breaking News: Russell Means Walks On –

Russell Means has been called the most famous American Indian since Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse by the Los Angeles Times and recognized as a natural leader with a fearless dedication and indestructible sense of pride. This morning at 4:44 a.m. Means walked on amongst the ancestors.

Means was a political activist and an early leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM) who had counted nine assassination attempts on his life, lost his fight with cancer.

According to his son, Scott Means, “My dad now walks among our ancestors. He began his journey to the spirit world at 4:44 a.m. with the morning star, at his home and ranch in Porcupine, Republic of Lakotah. There will be four opportunities for the people to honor his life; to be announced at a later date. Thank you for your prayers and continued support. We love you. As our dad and husband would say, ‘May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved ones.’”

  2. Did they? Lame.

  3. Let’s just change that back, shall we?
