For the World to Live Columbus Must Die

Program #MEAR003. Recorded in Denver, CO on April 27, 1992.

Audio sample:
For too many of us, for too long, the indigenous peoples of this continent have been curiosities that existed somewhere over the horizon between fantasy and reality. The popularly crafted images were of medicine men, squaws and peace pipes, teepees, tom toms and tomahawks, war bonnets, war paint, war whoops and war parties. The only Indians we knew were named Tonto, Geronimo and Crazy Horse. In recent years a lot of these cliches have disappeared. The American Indian Movement has done much to break down the conventional stereotypes. AIM articulates a program of self awareness and pride. It promotes treaty and land rights and religious freedom for Native Americans.

Speaker(s):

Russell Means

Russell Means, an Oglala Lakota and a prominent voice in the struggle for indigenous rights, was the first national director of the American Indian Movement. Under his leadership, and through actions from Alcatraz to Wounded Knee, the organization and the plight of Native Americans received national and international attention. He acted in a number of movies including The Last of the Mohicans and Natural Born KillersHe is the author of Where White Men Fear to Tread and with Bayard Johnson, If You've Forgotten the Names of the Clouds, You've Lost Your Way. He passed away in South Dakota on October 22, 2012.
