Russell Means (1939 - 2012) Lakotah Sioux: Let me send you to a higher spirit.

Thank You From Russell Means’ Family - November 9, 2012

Hello our relatives. We have completed the four sacred days in preparation for sending Russell Means’ spirit on his journey and his ashes have been scattered at Yellow Thunder in the Lakota sacred holy land, the He Sapa (Black Hills).

On behalf of the family I want to extend our appreciation and gratitude for all of the ceremonies, prayers, good words, and messages that we have received from friends and allies around the world. Russell was a man of the People and we all share in the responsibility of continuing his legacy...

The scheduled Honorings are as follows:

*February 27, 2013 at Wounded Knee ‘73 Liberation 40th Anniversary Wounded Knee, Pine Ridge Sioux Indian Reservation, South Dakota

*June 2013 (new moon) Russell Means’ annual Sun Dance – Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota

*November 10, 2013 (Russell Means’ birthday) – Denver, Colorado (facility to be determined)

As my husband often said, “May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved ones.”

Pearl Means, wife

It was an honor to be called "relative"

by Russell Means - it rang so true and so pure. Do yourself a favor and check him out, if you aren't aware of him. God bless Russell and family.

Thank you and BUMP

I cried when Russell Means died, it was so sad. Thank you for sharing this information. BIG BUMP

Thanks for posting.

I will have to get to one of the Honoring Ceremonies. Russell Means had a profound influence on my life, I would very much like the chance to formally honor this man I never met, yet whom I came to know and love like a grandfather. First, I knew him through his dancers, and then through the miracle of the internet.
That piece you cued up on the Victrola, excellent choice. Care to dance? Meet you at Wind Cave, perhaps.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
