The saying of a Great Chief named JOSEPH once said,

"We Are Taught To Believe That The Great Spirit Sees And Hears Everything And HE Never Forgets".
The Great Chief Joseph Said"All Men Are Made By The Same Great Spirit".

That same Great Spirit will see that Justice is done for all people.

A Wise King also once said"There has NOT
Failed ONE word of ALL his good promise that HE Has PROMISED" 1 Kings 8:56.

THE CREATOR SAYS"He will Wipe out Every Tear from their eyes" Revelation 12:3,4
You are resting only a little while, we hope to see you again soon.

As a girl, in Minnesota, my first recollection is from a radio station that was broadcasting, from St. Paul, at the time. Went from beading, and quill work stories, to real life politics, in short order.

You have taught me grace, bravery, and the dire need to stand up for what I believe . . . a good portion of which, you shaped.

Great messenger, you will live in my heart, always. I only hope to make your example, real in this world.

With Love, and all the blessings due you.

Your faithful friend.

We have lost an incredible being. He has taught so many so well. Please heed this man's words and listen deeply to your spirit. Guidance is there. Our sincere sympathies to the family and friends of this amazing soul.
October 23, 2012
It takes a warrior who cares about their people to fight the fight. Even Jesus became angry and threw tables over. Sometimes it takes people like Mr. Means to stir the pot for change. God bless him and his family at this time of sorrow. May he lift the spirits of many more warriors.
October 23, 2012
Though your journey on this earth has now ended, a new journey for you begins. You showed incredible courage to us all. You stood up for what you believed in and showed us all that no matter the battle - you fight for what is right. You will be missed here on earth, but your memory will live on in the hearts of your loved ones.
October 23, 2012
Let him continue to guide us. We are listening.
October 23, 2012
What a wonderful spirit that will always soar !
October 23, 2012
My mother had met him on several occasions. She told me how potent his presence was. She also told me that she, like so many others, was captivated by his words. My mother was an activist, battling for TWLF (Third World Liberation Front) in Northern CA, then the Alcatraz Occupation, and she had many friends in AIM. I was very young and remember her being gone a lot. When she got home, she had many stories for me. She would bring me bracelets – I unpacked those a few months ago, just about five years after her death. I guess what I am trying to say is the point here is that in order to be heard, reach goals, and impart knowledge on people, some feelings -and worse- may be hurt. More importantly, rather than choosing our heroes, we need to choose our beliefs. I am not ambivalent about Russell's death; I am sad. It leaves me with a feeling of emptiness that just hangs in the air. I see our Native American modern-day warriors slowly becoming our Native American elders, and it makes my heart heavy. There is so much to be learned from these people…so much about their past, the present, and what we can do together in the future, that any opportunity cannot be overlooked. I would give anything to have those we lost back -even just briefly- so I can finally be taught the truth.
October 23, 2012
Blessings to you Russell and strength to Pesrl.
October 23, 2012
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
October 23, 2012
Dear Family and Friends,

May the day soon come when you will be so preoccupied with the blessings of Our Father that you won't recall the sorrow and grief of today. (Ecclesiastes 5:50, paraphrased)

I'm so sorry about what happen to Mr Means
October 23, 2012
I remember Russell from Cleveland. During the 70's we wanted great changes that did not happen. I've since learned that there is a purpose to our existance and we will see him again. Our Creator did not create mankind for nothing to live a little while and then die. So I look forward to seeing him again. BiBle book of John 17:3 and Psalms 37:10,11 and 29, helps us to see this just to name a few scriptures.
October 23, 2012
a great man ,he will never know how many people you helped,you will be missed,and you will be loved forever good bye my friend sympathy to your family and friends peace be with you, you will always be remember.you are now at peace with the elders.

A great man that did great things. He will be missed and my sympathy to all who loved him.
October 23, 2012
Russell, Life has given you great strength. You have always faced the storms of life. You have always stood up in the storm and you have always faced the wind, the cold and the darkness. In the middle of a storm, you stood firm for your family, your friends, yourself and The Lakota People..

You have been a Great Warrior on your Earth Walk.

You have crossed over the rainbow bridge in beauty and Wankantanka has his son back in his arms.

Woplia,

I had an immense respect for Mr. Means. He was a strong advocate for his people. His life as lived was an example for all of us. I am from Minnesota so have followed the native peoples for decades. This world will miss his wisdom and advocacy. Travel lightly.
October 23, 2012
Though I'm 5th generation Texan of Mexican American descent, I also proudly claim my mixed Native American roots of Lipan-Apache, Tonkawa & Couhuahuitecan and I will gravely miss the wisdom and courage that my brother, Russell Means was known for, especially in the times we live now where leaders like him are few and far between. May he be at peace with the Great Spirit?

I'm sending prayers to the family, I was fortunate to meet Russel Means back in 1985 here in Tulalip Washington. I use to work at a culinery school here at Tulalup and we were honored to prepare a big dinner for Russel and the other people that had traveled with him. I even bought one of the books about Leonard Peltier very interresting. Russel will be missed by all and may his spirit live on within the rest of us. You will now be soaring with all over the other great leaders up in the sky.

I smile when i think of Russell Means I grew up knowing him and loving him as a good friend My Mom made sure i knew about the indian ways and Russell was the one to teach it she said When i was in trouble Russell was always there for anyone who needed a friend or a helping hand The one thing i loved the most about Russell is I'm not Indian in anyway but he took my family in and treat me as if i was his own child and let my Mom and I stay with him and teach me the indian ways i guess because of Russell that's why i married into Native American Thank you my friend you will be missed
October 23, 2012
I was so sorry to learn of Mr. Mean's passing. He was the movie in the Last of the Mohicans which I have seen many times. A true fighter for the rights of Native Americans and his family should be very proud of him. His legacy will live on. My prayers are with his family and friends.

My thoughts & prayers are with the Means family during this great loss. During the early 70's I attended the Yellow Thunder Rally's held at the Billy Mills gym, back in the day. I have the most respect for Mr. Means for bringing the issues and plight of our people to the front burner on both the local, national & international levels. He definitely paved the way for other native leaders voices to be heard on a larger scale. Rest in peace on a job well done....You will be missed.

Prayers to the family, I smile when thinking about Russ, it is because of him that we can not pray and stand up for our rights as Lakotas. lililili

An Old Indian Prayer
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am there,I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow
.I am the Sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain
.When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
.I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
.I am not there: I did not Die
October 23, 2012

I was completely captivated with your presence, energy, knowledge, and sincerity at the Women's Conference @ the Smithsonian in NY! That was a life changing day! We spoke about your book, you enlightened me to a world that I always felt part of, but knew little of. I will never forget that day, and the passion you sparked in me to continue to learn, grow, and seek the truths. It may have been no more than 10 minutes of interaction, but they were the most profound. Now you will be amongst the stars with our ancestors. Thank you Russell! You will forever be remembered. Prayers for your wife and family. May your spirit continue to guide us.

You will be greatly missed.But not forgotten.Rest in Peace Russell Means
October 22, 2012
Strangely, I have had Russell in my mind for several days now. He was a man who dared to live for what he believed in.
I am white, but know the tue story of the unofficial policy of genocide my government engged in.
I am shamed by what they have done to the indigenous peoples, and I have seen their suffering in places like Eastern Montana and N.D.
May the Great Mystery grant him a place of peace and light.
Please extend my condolences to Mrs. Means.
October 22, 2012
Our brother Eagle has flown from the Earth, Soar on our great hope to the
campfires of your fathers... All our

Thank you for all that you have done. Your work taught me not to be ashamed of my Native ancestors and to be proud of the Cherokee part of my family. My only regret is that I never got to thank you in person.

In the words of Chief Joseph..my heart is sick and sad. Russell you were a great leader of AIM, a true warrior for your people. I shall miss you. In 1975 I met you and was instantly inspired by your words and actions. May you walk with Crazy Horse and Red Cloud. Now there is no more pain and you will walk with young legs again
October 22, 2012
Rest in Peace Russell Means
October 22, 2012
It's a sad day for the earth since you left. I'll remember your kind but resolute ways of dealing with important native American problems. Rest in Peace.
October 22, 2012
My condolences go out to the family. I have always admired his dedication and spirit. Ever since I was little, I looked up to Russell Means and Mary Crow Dog for the stand they took at Wounded Knee. He was and is a brave man. He beleived in freedom for his people and could not stand by why their rights and lives were being taken. In teh words of the great chief Crazy Horse "Hokahey, today is a good day to die!" Russell you will be missed but enver forgotten.
October 22, 2012
It was a sudden surprise to learn of Russell Means passing. Leader Warrior Means has fullfilled his wise guidance with words of wisdom, and from his heart, he had such enomous compassion for all Indians, it is very true he spoke for all of us, from his heart like the beat of a drum , and our own hearts beat along aside with him . With deep respect to his family, his Tribal people, and closest friends, may the Sky Spirit be with you in mourning.
October 22, 2012
I thank the Great Spirit for letting me make the herbal medicines for you during your time of illness and your threshold passing. Its been a wonderful journey getting to know you personally and your lovely wife Pearl who has held a strong bowl of light for you. May you join the great Creator of all things, and sit with your ancestors at their council fire.
Many beautiful journey's Russell my friend.....
October 22, 2012
