RUSSELL MEANS TO BE INDUCTED INTO
THE NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS HALL OF FAME
By NAMA Hall of Fame
Niagara Falls, NY – The 14th Annual Native American Music Awards will be inducting the late American Indian activist, actor, and musician, Russell Means, into the NAMA Hall of Fame on May 10, 2013 at the Seneca Niagara Hotel & Casino in Niagara Falls, New York.
Means entered the entertainment business in both film and music to try to change mainstream attitudes toward American Indians. His recordings contained songs entitled, “Nuclear World”, “Paha Sapa”, “Wounded Knee Set Us Free”, “Chief Joseph”, “Consipiracy To Be Free” and more. These recordings preserve the life and legacy of Russell Means through music and spoken word and are a reminder of his courage, inspiration and teachings now left behind for us.
His wife Pearl Means will be present to receive the Hall of Fame Induction. A musical tribute, accompanied by images of Means throughout his life, will be performed by Native American Music Award winner CC Murdock. CC Murdock, who won Best Country Recording in 2011, will be performing the song, Go Rest High On That Mountain. During his final journey, the ashes of Russell Means were spread at Yellow Thunder Camp in the Black Hills.
