Russell Means Dies: Statement from Russell’s Family

October 22, 2012
Hello our relatives. Our dad and husband, now walks among our ancestors. He began his journey to the spirit world at 4:44 am, with the Morning Star, at his home and ranch in Porcupine. 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 always say, “May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved ones.”

Comment: I am deeply saddened to learn of Mr. Means passing.  May he rest in peace.  And may his family and the Lakotah nation be comforted by his memory as he takes his place among their ancestors.

I was and remain a great admirer of his fiery militancy and no-nonsense confrontation with whiteness.

I had it in the back of my mind that we would meet one day but time has passed at least in this round.

See this LA Times obituary for more information on his life.

He will be greatly missed.
