RUSSELL CHARLES MEANS The American Indian activist and actor signed this piece of paper in red ink Clipped Signature: “Russell C. Means” in red ink on a 4½x1¼ piece of paper. Typed underneath his name: “Speaker's Signature”. Russell C. Means (1939-2012) was an American Oglala Lakota activist for the rights of Native American people and libertarian political activist. In 1968, Means joined the American Indian Movement (AIM), where he became a prominent leader. A strong-minded supporter of the Libertarian Party and the rights of American Indians, Means regularly participated in passionate protests on behalf of the Native American people. These protests include the Alcatraz Occupation (1969), the seizing of the Mayflower II (1970), and the occupation of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) office in Washington, District of Columbia (1972). Means was appointed AIM's first national director in 1970, and the organization began a period of protests and activism. In 1973, Means appeared as a prominent leader at the 71-day occupation of Wounded Knee by AIM activists. Hundreds of activists, FBI agents, and law enforcement officials participated in this lengthy standoff. He ran as part of a United States Presidential ticket two times: in 1983, as businessman Larry Flynt's running mate, and in 1987, as a candidate for the Libertarian Party. In 1987, he finished second in the primary vote, winning over 31% of the delegates' votes. Since 1992, Means has appeared in numerous films and television movies, first as the chief Chingachgook in The Last of the Mohicans (1992). He also had roles in The Pathfinder (1996), his second appearance in a movie adapted from a novel by James Fenimore Cooper. He appeared in Natural Born Killers (1994), as Sitting Bull in Buffalo Girls (1995), and also voiced the character Chief Powhatan in Disney's 1995 animated feature Pocahontas. In 1995, Means published an autobiography, Where White Men Fear to Tread, written with Marvin J. Wolf. Tape adhesive on verso shows through. Uneven edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
