Charles Eastman's wife was a white woman who was also working at the Pine Ridge reservation, Miss Elaine Goodale of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Shortly after returning from his wedding in the East, Eastman was forced by the corrupt Indian agent to quit his job at the agency in retaliation for his attempt to help the Sioux prove crimes against the agent and his white friends. In 1893, he, his wife and their new baby moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he started a medical practice.

Soon, however, Charles Eastman accepted a position as field secretary for the International Committee of the YMCA, and spent the next three years traveling throughout the US and Canada visiting many Indian tribes in an attempt to start new YMCAs in those areas.

In 1897 Dr. Eastman went to Washington as the legal representative and lobbyist for the Sioux tribe. From 1899 to 1902 he again served as a government physician to the Sioux, this time at Crow Creek Agency in South Dakota.
