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.

The photos in the video are not the property of the video author and are borrowed here only to pay tribute to the life of Russell Means. For more information on the photos, search Google Images.

LONG WALK ( Lyrics )

So many tender tears
That gather here to beat the sacred drum

So many wounded wings
That sing and dance a circle 'round the sun

Long time we be walking
Long walk I be at your side

So many misty moons
That pierce the gloom on great horizons

So many painted skies
That train the eye on better days begun

Long time we be walking
Long walk I be at your side

Long time we be walking
Long walk nations on the rise

Drive your horse down waves of thunder
Weave your robe with rays of morning light
Raise a prayer on clouds of wonder
When lightning strikes
When eagles take to flight

So many windy trails
That dare prevail the harshest border

So many waking dreams
That flow like streams of healing water

Long time we be walking
Long walk I be at your side

So many wisdom wheels
That still reveal each true relation

So many kindred hearts
That welcome home the restoration

Long time we be walking
Long walk I be at your side

Long time we be walking
Long walk nations on the rise.
