Also in 2019, he is cast in a film version of Alex Kershaw's book The Liberator, as Private Thomas Otaktay, a Lakota soldier fighting with the 157th Field Artillery Regiment during World War Two.


Other major roles include Hobbamock, an elite Pokanoket warrior, in Saints & Strangers (2015), Delvin in Neither Wolf Nor Dog (2016), and Charges the Enemy in The Son.

In Tiger Eyes (2012), based on the novel by Judy Blume, he played Wolf Ortiz, a Native American boy who shows the main character his ancestral lands and introduces her to his culture. Critics have applauded Means' casting and performance in Tiger Eyes. One described him as "quietly affecting"; another said that he "could have come off as a holy-native cliche, but instead seems entirely real"; and another wrote that he was "superbly cast ... [with] a voice that can quickly disarm and charm a newcomer ... it's clear that we're seeing something almost never seen in a contemporary feature film, which is an utterly authentic representation of a New Mexican." Another review said he is "New Mexican down to his body language and the expression in his eyes .. a thrill to behold on screen."

For his role as 'Wolf' in Tiger Eyes, Tatanka received the award of Best Supporting Actor in the American Indian Film Festival, Best Actor in a Motion Picture at the Red Nation Film Festival, and Tamalewood Award at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. He has also won Best Actor at the Nevada Film Festival for his role as Jim Sundell in Derby Kings (2012) and Best Male Actor at the Dreamspeakers Film Festival, Edmonton, Alberta, for the same film.


Means was awarded the American Indian Business Leaders (AIBL) Entrepreneur of the year award in 2011. He created an original clothing line called “Tatanka Clothing,” which is intended to create cultural awareness for Native people and Native business people. In 2006, he appeared in a 21st Century Skins Native American Men's Calendar, which he also helped market.


Means' first screen role was in 2004 playing lead stunt double in the film Black Cloud, which was shot in the same gym where he had previously trained as a boxer. He has since had major roles in several films and TV series. In the miniseries Into the West (2005) he played Crazy Horse. In More Than Frybread (2012), he played Buddy Begay, a "hip-hop Navajo fry-bread rock star" who sells fry-bread from a truck on the reservation. A reviewer who described it as the "showiest part" in the film said, "Means .. overdoes it a little ... but that's part of Buddy's personality."
