This editorial coming from a person ("warriors" don't behave this way) who commits physical violence against his own family including an elder. This is a person who avoided prosecution for these crimes by disavowing a tribe's sovereign right to prosecute crimes committed in their territory. This is a person who calls others sell outs, yet accepts a major role in an animated film that stereotyped Native women and bastardized real history. This is a person who doesn't mind accepting money and goods from the "invaders" when it suits his narcissistic, self-centered greed. This is a person who rides on the coat tails of the many other Native patriots who also led the efforts for justice at Wounded Knee, yet neglects to acknowledge the work of his fellow warriors in that great work. This is a person whose exploits only serve his egomaniacal drive for publicity and money from the "invaders". Get a REAL job Mr. Means. Your political clout is shot to smithereens. And...that is ONE thing you actually DID accomplish all on your own.
