ACF Equity Study Group on Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian

October 14, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

For this month’s Equity Study Group, we will review Syd Beane‘s documentary film Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian. 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. We will be discussing the film with Dr. Kate Beane about the film and the parallels she discovered between her life and that of Eastman.

Watch the TPT Preview here.
