Pearl Means shares this video as family and friends begin the second honoring of Russell Means on Pine Ridge in South Dakota.
In fond remembrance of Russell Means ( 1939-2012 ). A fearless warrior for First Nations people. A challenging force conscience for all North Americans. I never met the man, but I always liked him. I was always humbled, enlightened, and encouraged to reflect by what he had to say. His frankness and strength of conviction evoked the same in others and served his concerns for his people well.
"Long Walk" was composed and is performed here by Lloyd Vivola. Inspired at first by sadness during the weeks after Russell Mean's departure, then by hope that a new era of treaty rights, social justice, truth and reconciliation is possible. Lyrics posted below.
