Tributes: Russell Means

Monday, October 22, 2012

Russell Means starred as Chingachgook alongside Daniel Day-Lewis' Hawkeye in "The Last of the Mohicans." He also voiced Chief Powhatan in the 1995 animated film "Pocahontas" – and he had an advantage, in that he was a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe.  He was also the first director of the American Indian Movement.  He just died at the age of 72.  And you can hear his interview from 1995 with Leonard for his memoir, Where White Men Fear to Tread.
