Running Bravely Through Life with Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota)
Special Presentation for School Groups:
Friday, November 7
10 – 11 a.m.
Billy Mills won the gold medal in the 10,000 meter event in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. As a boy, Billy felt broken by the racism that surrounded him. He looked inside himself and to his Native American values to overcome obstacles, discover his passion and reach for his dreams. This is the message and challenge he will give to students during his presentation at the Eiteljorg Museum on Friday, November 7. Space for this program is extremely limited. Tours may be scheduled before or after the program. Call 317-275-1350 today to schedule your group. Student tours
