slide 8 of 10

In 1910 Eastman began his long association with the Boy
Scouts, helping Ernest Thompson Seton establish the organization based in large part on the prototype of the American Indian.

It was also at about this time that he started to become in high demand as a lecturer and public speaker, traveling extensively in the US and abroad. Eastman was chosen to represent the American Indian at the Universal Races Congress in London in 1911. His public speaking continued for the remainder of his life.

Beginning in 1910 and for the rest of his life, Charles Eastman also became involved with many progressive organizations attempting to improve the circumstances of the various Indian tribes. At one time he was president of the Society of American Indians, one prominent organization of that type.

From 1915 to 1920 the Eastman family created and operated a summer camp for girls, Camp Oahe, at Granite Lake, New Hampshire, attempting to teach Indian life-ways to young girls.
