I chose this picture to place in my blog because these are the two greatest Indian in the 20th Century. Of course my friend Russell Means passed away last year and this is the second honoring and Dennis Banks is speaking. I thought it was pretty cool that I made a bet with my teachers and gave them eleven points against us. We were playing against Red Cloud school and way back then we had Chadron or Chadrad broadcasting out games. We were just under the point spread and I was able to get the ball and score to make sure I covered the points and I won a few dollars.
So Dennis Banks and Russell Means are amazing men. I wish I could be like them but it was a different era and these men were willing to put their lives on the line. I spent some time with Russ and he helped me to understand Freedom and he was a true friend. We spent time visiting and he gave me advice and some people would like to make something up but in the end, I can only think he was my friend. Oh and the area this picture was taken was the place I scored and bet the Crusaders!!!
