Ted Means RIP

One of the greatest leaders of the Oglala Nation passed away today, AIM brother, uncle, elder Ted Means.  Our thoughts and prayers on this National Day of Mouring go out to the Means family on this very difficult day. Many of us in AIM worked beside Ted in a concentrated effort to improve conditions for all Indigenous people of the western hemisphere and in the Oglala Lakota Nation of South Dakota.  We will miss his humor, dedication and commitment in good times and bad times. Ted Means gave his entire life to helping the Lakota people and all Native communities who sit without necessary resources each and every day.  Mitakuyeowasin
