Russell Means – (1939 – 2012) – In Memoriam

October 22nd, 2012

With a sad heart we received the news this morning that Russell Means awaited the rising of the morning star before leaving the world of his beloved home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

May his spirit live on in the children of his people, may his strength be passed to them and may his life serve as an example to all who believe in freedom.

Russell’s passing is a great loss not only for our project but also for the community for whose rights and freedom he fought so tirelessly.

All who knew him and loved him will never forget what a true warrior he was.
