This second part of his autobiography begins with Ohiyesa’s abrupt departure from traditional life at the age of 15 to join his father in the “civilized” world. Renamed Charles Alexander Eastman, he attended Dartmouth, became a physician, and moved to Pine Ridge Agency to begin his practice. Here, he met and married Elaine Goodale, a white woman who was supervisor of Indian Schools. Eastman, who witnessed the aftermath of the massacre at Wounded Knee, spent much of his life serving as a “translator” for Native people to whites.
