Russell Means has joined the ancestors. Regardless of whatever can be said about some of his more questionable beliefs and actions, one can’t erase his place in the history of modern indigenous resistance. The following is a message from his wife and children on his passing. Posting it by The Speed of Dreams in no way implies an endorsement of the positions of Russ Means.
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.”
