Russell Means: ‘Revolution and American Indians: “Marxism is as Alien to my Culture as Capitalism”’ (1980)

‘It takes a strong effort on the part of each American Indian not to become Europeanized.’  ‘To cling to capitalism and Marxism and all other “isms” is simply to remain within European culture. There is no avoiding this basic fact. As a fact, this constitutes a choice. Understand that the choice is based on culture, not race. Understand that to choose European culture and industrialism is to choose to be my enemy. And understand that the choice is yours, not mine.’
