‘Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian’ film screening

The Metropolitan State University Library Events Committee and the Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship presents “Ohiyesa: The Soul of an Indian,” a film screening and moderated discussion with Syd and Kate Beane on Friday, Feb. 8 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in Metropolitan State University Founders Hall Auditorium, 387 Maria Ave. This event is free and open to the public, light refreshments will be served. The 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 profound tribute to the life of Ohiyesa, and, as executive producer Syd Beane says, “a truly American story.” If you need disability related accommodations, including parking, to make this event accessible, please contact the Center for Accessibility Resources at 651-793-1549 or accessibility.resources@metrostate.edu.
