    Russell Means is one of contemporary America's best-known and prolific activists for the rights of American Indians. Mr. Means is without a doubt the most controversial Indian leader of our time. He was the subject of the book entitled "Where White Men Fear to Tread" which tells the first hand story of his life so far, in which he has done everything possible to dramatize the Indian desire for self determination-from storming Mount Rushmore, to seizing Plymouth Rock, to running for President in 1988, to leading a seventy-one-day takeover of Wounded Knee in 1973, for which he is most famous. You may have seen his various acting roles in such movies as The Last of the Mohicans as well as guest appearances on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.
