    Russell Means, Legendary American Indian Movement Founder, Activist and Actor

    in Religion

    Russell Means, AIM Co-founder Speaks on Matriarchy


    Russell Means has lived a life like few others in this century - revered for his selfless accomplishments and remarkable bravery. He was born into a society and guided by way of life that gently denies the self in order to promote the survival and betterment of family and community. His culture is driven by tradition, which at once links the past to the present.


    The L.A. Times has called him the most famous American Indian since Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. His indomitable sense of pride and leadership has become embedded in our national character. Today, his path has brought him to Hollywood, thus enabling him to use different means to communicate his vital truths. Through the power of media, his vision is to create peaceful and positive images celebrating the magic and mystery of his American Indian heritage. In contemplating the fundamental issues about the world in which we live, he is committed to educating all people about our most crucial battle - the preservation of the earth.


    Thirty years ago, reflecting the consciousness of the sixties, he captured national attention when he led the 71-day armed takeover on the sacred grounds of Wounded Knee, a tiny hamlet in the heart of South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation. Means joined "The Longest Walk" in 1978 to protest a new tide of anti-Indian legislation including the forced sterilization of Indian women. Following the walk, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution saying that national policy was to protect the rights of Indians, to believe, express and exercise their traditional religions, including but not limited to access to sites, use and possession of sacred objects, and the freedom to worship through ceremonials and traditional rites.


    At the end of his celebrated life, with the same passionate determination, he directed his energy towards the entertainment industry.

    The Joshua Generation Network: The American Black Women on African Nations

    in Culture

    What should be our stance and response as Black women on the state of affairs in African nations?


    The mainstream media makes every attempt to make it appear that Africa is filled with nothing but wild violent uneducated monkeys running through the wild and the jungles of the continent, but the truth is that there are plenty of African nations that are more well off economically than many Black communities in America, even with its more indigenous and poverty-stricken cultures.


    What should be the Blackwoman's stance in America as to the continent of Africa and to any particular African nation?


    Instead of using the words "Black Unity," let's phrase it a different way: "Are we ever going to start singing our different parts and playing our different instruments in the same choir, or start singing all of our different parts in the choir to the tune of the same song at the same time?"
