Rain Bear Stands Last

Rain is the director of the trending documentary Somebody’s Daughter which focuses on the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) crisis. One review describes the film as “among the most important documentaries made on not only MMIW, but also on Indian Country in the twenty-first century.” His previous film, Not In Our Name, had the distinction of being entered into the Congressional record at a House Natural Resources Committee hearing in May 2019. Rain is a member of the Strange Owl family from Birney and Lame Deer, Montana. He is also Romani and is often listed among “notable Romani people.”

The shameless self-promotion on the Somebody's Daughter website. Nuts!

Yeah, who is this Rain person? I saw him on the Dr. Phil when they did a show called Missing and Murdering Montana. S20 E40. He was on there and seemed to dominate the conversation. He claimed to be Tribal and from the Romany Tribe..? that's what he called them. Even though he had blond hair and blue eyes. He came across as very strange and seemed to be trying to hide his identity with his big hat. I really couldn't see his face. He was dress kind of weird. Like he was at a circus. Anyway that's the impression I got. He was very out of place for something like that.

I tried to look him up after the show and couldn't find anything about him. What gives about this guy? And who is he and where does he come from? It's like he's a ghost. Why is this white guy attaching himself to this very devastating situation to Native Americans?

On several sites he describes himself as Romani, even wearing a t shirt saying Gypsy. Lame Deer is the Northern Cheyenne rez. Perhaps he married into them. Dressing up like Billy Jack is strange, though. Here he says he is Cheyenne and Arapaho also.

Hmmm, I'm not sure about that. From what little I could see of him on the Dr. Phil show, he wore a ton of eyeliner and mascara. He appeared very feminized.
