After researching the persecution of American Indians by the US government, Russell Means, also a Native American, decided to fight back through organized protest. Means reveals his transformation from troubled teenager to motivated community activist. Although Means is not an accomplished speaker, no one could better convey the disheartening ordeals of his people more appropriately. Bitterness surfaces in his voice as he reveals the countless inequities Native Americans have suffered. He emotionally exposes how years of prejudice toward him resulted in a frustrating battle against alcoholism and debilitating suppression of anger. Means's inspirational portrayal of the American Indians' spiritual beliefs, convictions and myths is mesmerizing. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
