Event Description:
Meet Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota) and see the film Running Brave, which chronicles his journey from the Pine Ridge Reservation to the medal platform at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, where he won a gold medal for his record-setting run in the 10,000 meter event. Billy Mills later joined forces with Eugene Krizek to create Running Strong for American Indian Youth, a non-profit dedicated to bringing resources and hope to American Indian Communities.

After the film screening, Billy Mills and his wife Pat will facilitate a Q&A session which will be followed by a book signing for Billy Mills' book Wokini: A Lakota Journey to Happiness and Self-Understanding
