Russell Means sues after losing Pine Ridge election
Friday, December 3, 2004

Activist/actor Russell Means has filed a lawsuit in federal court aimed at stopping Cecelia Fire Thunder from being sworn in as president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.

Means ran for president but lost to Fire Thunder, who won 56 percent of the vote. Now he says Fire Thunder doesn't meet the requirements for candidacy because he says she lives off the reservation.

Fire Thunder, the first woman president of the tribe, is due to be sworn in on December 11.

Every time I hear this man's name in public, it is another example of what a dumba$$ he is.

I met him one time and he was aloof and distant.

Hmm, I thought he lived in New Mexico

In fact wasn't it he who argued that the Navajo court didn't have jurisdiction over him because he's Sioux? You know that whole beating up his elderly father-in-law thing.

Great example of leadership. Wonder if Disney will ask him to do Pocahontas III?

BadM:

Russell Means plays a boxing coach in the movie Black Cloud. (What's wrong with this picture?)

One review says the lead actor is Lakota actor Eddie Spears. Spears trained three months with the legendary boxing trainer Jimmy Gambia to prefect his boxing skills. He portrays Black Cloud, a Navajo boxer training for the Olympics, while struggling with the secrets of his family's heritage. It is also a love story.


Means trained on his father inlaw one night. This qualified him to portray Spear's boxing coach. Mean's is also struggling with his heritage.

I was hoping that Russell Means would have defenders or family to dispute how we feel. I don't know how revered he is in Lakota country but in Dakota country it may be a different story.

Get over it Russell!

Russell Means is related to me through marriage. I have never met him but I know three of his brothers. Two of them are married to my aunties. I can't stand up for him because I think he is a big baby. If my uncles knew what I said, they pry get mad at me. It is true though. He act as if he knows everything but yet he votes republican. As far as I know Republicans have not helped native americans in South Dakota. It don't shock me that he is trying to sue. Guys cant handle it when a woman beats them in a election!!!
