The third of four ceremonies to honor the life of former American Indian Movement activist Russell Means will be Thursday in the Black Hills.
Means will be honored at 12 p.m. at Wind Cave.
Means died in October 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.
Means' ashes were spread in the Black Hills last fall.
