About Russell Means (1939-2012)

An American Oglala Lakota activist for the rights of Native American people and libertarian political activist, Russell Means became a prominent member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) after joining the organization in 1968. He helped organize notable events that attracted national and international media coverage.

The artwork exhibited at the reception is on loan from EIU Alumnus Dr. Gordon Grado and his wife, Mary. Both are long-time admirers of Russell Means and recently acquired the artwork from the Means estate.
