First Of 4 Services To Honor Means Is Wednesday
Russell Means

KYLE, SD -

The first of four ceremonies to honor the life of former American Indian Movement activist Russell Means will be Wednesday on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Means died Monday morning at his home on the Pine Ridge reservation after battling cancer. He was 72. A onetime leader of the American Indian Movement, Means called national attention to the plight of impoverished tribes and often lamented the waning of their culture. Even after leaving AIM in the 1980s, he was still a cultural presence, appearing in several movies.

Wednesday's service will be at the Little Wound High School in Kyle. Three other ceremonies are scheduled for next year.

Means' ashes are expected to be scattered in the Black Hills of South Dakota on Thursday.
