Former Indian Movement activist Russell Means passed away Monday at his home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation at the age of 72.

The number four is significant in the Lakota culture and Means' family has four services planned, the first of which will be held 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday at the Little Wound School in Kyle, on the Pine Ridge reservation.

Three other ceremonies will take place next year. One will be at the site of the 1973 Wounded Knee occupation. Another will be at Wind Cave National Park and the last one will be at a location not yet determined.
