Sarah Eagle Heart, Oglala Lakota CEO of Native Americans in Philanthropy, is a powerful storyteller whose deep perspective on healing trauma is rooted in her life story and experiences as a teen activist raised on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. She is an internationally accomplished executive focused on education and advocacy on behalf of Indigenous peoples. She has spent the last decade building momentum around healing and sustainability in the spirit of cultural revitalization. Her diverse background in tribal, corporate, faith-based and non-profit organizations focused on communications, marketing, program development, and advocacy offers a unique vantage point that powerfully amplifies impact. One of her recent philanthropy and influencer partnerships released in 2018 is virtual reality and 2D animated project titled “Crow: The Legend” with BaoBab Studios starring John Legend, Oprah Winfrey, Constance Wu, Tye Sheridan and Liza Koshy. Another recent 2018 collaborative project she is proud of is the "#StandNVote" PSA to get out the vote with Mark Ruffalo, Shailene Woodley and Tonia Jo Hall.
