This documentary follows Kate Beane as she examines the extraordinary life of her celebrated relative, Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa).

Biography and journey come together as Beane 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. The film is a tribute to the life of Ohiyesa, and, as executive producer Syd Beane says, “a truly American story.” Source: https://www.visionmakermedia.org/films/ohiyesa
