"Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian" Film Screening
St. Paul, MN 55102
"Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian" is a deeply personal family film that follows Kate Beane, an urban, Dakota scholar and now director of Native American Initiatives at MNHS, and her family as they trace the remarkable life of their celebrated relative, Ohiyesa (Charles Eastman), an important author, activist, lecturer and one of the first Native American doctors. Along the way, Beane uncovers uncanny parallels between their lives, though they were born more than 100 years apart.
Q&A with film producer Syd Beane will follow the screening.
Syd Beane is a filmmaker and board chair of the American Indian CDC, a board vice-chair of the Little Earth United Tribes Housing Board, and a committee chair of the Cloudman Village Recognition Committee. He has also written and co-produced "Native Nations: Standing Together for Civil Rights."
