Remembering Russell Means
Indian rights activist Means passes.
by Stephen Lendman
Over a year ago, he knew he had inoperable esophageal cancer. It spread to his tongue, lymph nodes and lungs. It was just a matter of time. On October 22, it took him. His journey to the spirit world began.
In August 2011, he said:
"I'm not going to argue with the Great Mystery. Lakota belief is that death is a change of worlds. And I believe like my dad believed."
"When it's my time to go, it's my time to go. I've told people after I die, I'm coming back as lightning. When it zaps the White House, they'll know it's me."
Earlier he said:
"The Universe which controls all life, has a female and male balance that is prevalent throughout our Sacred Grandmother, the Earth."
