Russell Means Winning Over Cancer
Mon. 12/19 11a: In late August, we brought you the story of famous AIM activist and Native actor Russell Means’ (Lakota) fight with throat cancer.
Doctors told him the cancer was inoperable and terminal. Yet, he shunned conventional methods of cancer treatment like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Instead, he turned to alternative treatment and also relied heavily on traditional indigenous methods of healing. How did this decision turn out? Means is now claiming victory and recently announced he is cancer free.
