Born of the Santee Sioux in 1858, Eastman was faced with immense individual and communal changes as colonization overtook the nation.

Eastman transcended the divide between his Native culture and the American culture, although he supported acculturation rather than assimilation. He obtained positions of distinction, namely, becoming a medical doctor and famed author. His various positions of distinction allowed him to actively participate in the transformation of the Native culture.

His literary contributions catered to the fascination of American readers by way of strict Native cultural content. Based upon his cultural ideals, however, it is clear that he aimed to communicate the significance of his Native cultural mores, reinforcing the subject matter as a significant facet of history rather than as a form of entertainment.
