The founder of a California film festival dedicated to showcasing Native American talent says former American Indian Movement activist and actor Russell Means will be honored during this year's event.
Red Nation Film Festival founder Joanelle Romero tells The Associated Press that organizers will screen Means' film "Tiger Eyes" and air a montage of the actor at the Nov. 7-14 festival in Los Angeles.
Means, a onetime leader of AIM who later appeared in several films, died at his home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota on Monday. He was 72.
Romero says Means was on the festival's board. A lifetime achievement award was created in honor of the actor last year.
Means got his start in movies with "The Last of the Mohicans."
