Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian

Stick around after the film for a discussion about Charles Eastman with ASU American Indian Studies Associate Professor Dr. David Martinez (Gila River Pima), author of Dakota Philosopher: Charles Eastman and American Indian Thought.

About the film

This documentary follows Kate Beane, a young Dakota woman, as she examines the extraordinary life of her celebrated relative, Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa). Biography and journey come together as Kate traces Eastman’s path—from traditional Dakota boyhood, through education at Dartmouth College, and in later roles as physician, author, lecturer, and Native American advocate.
