Charles A. Eastman Name: Institution: Abstract Charles Alexander Eastman is a Dakota author credited for his works that facilitated understanding of the native Americans. He explores the two worlds he lived, during his childhood and later during adulthood in his works. The challenges he encountered in his early life prepared him for his future profession. He remains a relevant figure in the history of American Indian activism. Although he is considered a great philosopher by the contemporary world, his achievements and devotion have been dismissed by the Indian scholars due to his views which favored assimilation of western culture in the native culture. He also preferred for the maintenance of identity within the two sides. He differed with his wife on opinion concerning the adoption of western culture as his wife preferred the seclusion of native communities from western influence, which allegedly destroyed their marriage. The paper, therefore, sought to examine in detail the early life and success works of Charles Eastman through intensive research on his life.   Charles A.
