4 Services Planned For Former AIM Activist Means

4 Services Planned For Former AIM Activist Means
Russell Means

KYLE, SD -

Family members of Russell Means are planning four services to honor the former American Indian Movement activist.

Means, an Oglala Sioux Tribe member and actor, died at home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation on Monday. He was 72.

There will be four services because the number is significant in Lakota culture, representing, among other things, the four seasons.

The first ceremony to honor Means is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday at the Little Wound School in Kyle, on the Pine Ridge reservation. Three more ceremonies will take place next year. One will be at the site of the 1973 Wounded Knee occupation. Another will be at Wind Cave National Park. Means' ashes are to be scattered in the Black Hills, which are sacred to the Lakota.
