Bright Eyes

While working the NET documentary "Standing Bear's Footsteps," Associate Producer Princella Parker discovered Susette La Flesche.  Also known by her Omaha name, Bright Eyes, La Flesche was the daughter of Omaha Chief Iron Eye and a college educated woman.   She championed Indian rights when northern tribes were being forcibly removed to reservations.   La Flesche is one of five prominent women recognized in the Nebraska Hall of Fame.
