INDIAN SAYS KEY IS NA TURAL RIGHTS
Death of liberalism feared
BY DAVID SPAK
Natural rights - respect for all living
things - should outweigh both human
and civil rights, according to American
Indian Movement leader Russel Means.
The Native American leader ex-
plained that he is opposed to those con-
cepts if they imply that everyone must
"deal with the industrial society,"
which he said is suicidal.
"WE ARE CURSED with the powers
of reason and we are the weakest
beings on eairth," Means said. he said
that man should believe "in the
spiritual superiority of nature," should
fight for natural rights, and should at-
tempt to better understand the cycle of
Means was one of more than 400
Native Americans who took control of
Wounded Knee, S.D. for 71 days in early
1973 to protest the government's unfair
treatment of Native Americans. He
spoke to more than 1,200 persons in

MEANS, A MEMBER of the Lakota
tribe, referred to Native American
teachings throughout his talk. He said
the basic philosophy of all Native
American nations is virtually the
same: "Every living thing has a direc-
tion and a role in life except (man)."
"The human being has much to learn
and relearn" about dealing with the en-
vironment, and could start by
"listening to our relatives (other living
things,)" Means said. He said a
primary axiom of Native American
culture is to have "respect for our
relatives' vision" because true beings
of nature survive by instinct, and not
"Even a fox knows how to conserve,"
Means explained. "When he comes to a
tree with snails on its branches, he does
not eat all the snails on any one branch.
Instead, he eats them one at a time" to
conserve the resource, he said.
Means called for the dismantling of
the industrial society in order for man
to gain natural rights. He warned that
energy and food supplies have reached
levels of near depletion due to the ac-
tivities of multinational corporations.
