In his last years he spent only the coldest winter months with his son in Detroit, where he died on January 8, 1939, at the age of eighty. For several years toward the end of his life he worked on a major study on the Sioux, but the project was never completed.

In his later adult life Charles Eastman was the foremost Indian spokesman of his day. His contributions to our understanding of the American Indian philosophy and religion are so significant that at the 1933 Chicago World’s
Fair Eastman was presented a special medal honoring the most distinguished achievements by an American Indian.

World Wisdom is honored to present selected writings of this remarkable author, thinker, activist, and contributor to the richness of American culture in the book The Essential Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa): Light on the Indian World, edited by Michael Fitzgerald.

Many more details of his life can be found on our Author page for Charles Eastman.
Dr. Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa) in 1916
