Eastman earned a medical degree from Boston University
School of Medicine in 1890, and then began working for the Office of Indian Affairs later
that year. He worked at the Pine Ridge Agency, South Dakota, and was an eyewitness to both
events leading up to and following the Wounded Knee Massacre of December 29, 1890.
Himself part-Sioux, he knew many of the people about whom he wrote.
