Caroline Running Wolf
Expat Indians

Caroline Running Wolf, née Old Coyote, is an enrolled member of the Apsaalooke Nation (Crow) and half German. Born in Sacramento (California) she was raised in Billings (Montana), Toronto (Canada), and the small village of Büttelbronn (Germany). Caroline is a cultural acclimation artist who taught herself 11 languages and travelled the world. After 20 years Caroline returned to Montana to reconnect with her family and pursue her Master’s degree in Native American Studies at Montana State University, Bozeman, where she also met her husband, Michael. They pooled their talents and together are fighting to revitalize endangered languages and broaden minds. With her thesis, a documentary film project Expat Indians, Caroline is challenging stereotypes about Native American identity in the hope of eventually heightening mutual understanding and tolerance.
