Means, an Oglala/Lakota who was born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, is probably best known for his role as an outspoken (and often controversial) American Indian activist. He has also appeared in several films, and authored an autobiography, Where white men fear to tread. Means currently runs T.R.E.A.T.Y. Productions, and is building a Total Immersion School in Porcupine on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
