  1. I am doing a research paper on all that Robin Poor Bear experienced and accomplished during her life. I cannot understand why there is nothing concerning how she died. Was it a result of all the abuse to her body from her early years of alcohol abuse, or what has been suspected that there was foul play. Suicide? What and why all the secrecy? Does it have something to do with the Indian nation? It would be nice just to know the truth. Thank you.

    • Right or did the family who had ties and Strong armed the way for this child predator murder her? They had enough reason to and she probably didn’t back down.

  2. I agree Joseph. I was just wondering what happened to her and was SHOCKED to find she died!!! I absolutely loved the documentary and fell in love with Robin Poor Bear. She was so brave, real and honest. I, too, would like to know how she passed so young! This has saddened my heart today.

  3. I had the same questions, plus others. I finally found a brief mention in an article that said she died of a gunshot, apparently self-inflicted. No other details. I also am confused because the obituary says she is survived by her boyfriend, there is no mention of the man she married during the filming. And the very long list of survivors include the same family members and ex-in-laws who made her life such he’ll. Why? She was a shining light, and I mourn her passing.

    • Will we ever know what actually happened? This haunts me for some reason. It just doesn’t make sense. The suicide and the absences of the husband.

  4. Something is just not right here. She would never do that to herself leaving her kids, watching the documentary made that clear. Something is definitely wrong.

    • I completely concur and think that the Indian Nation was behind part of her demise. I am part Indian and believe I can say this without sounding racist at any level. People are people and the control they have on the reservations is wrong at some levels.

  5. I just watched the documentary and it was a blow to read that she passed. If in fact she completed suicide I pray she found peace finally. I also pray that her children have blossomed and learning to heal from all that they have faced. I could never second guess her life ending choice. That cloud that hovers over you when there seems no end in sight to the suffering and struggle, the mind keeps you in a tunnel. She loved her babies.

    • As a psychotherapist who focuses on PTSD and suicide, I too was surprised at the ending and do not believe it was a case of successful suicide but again those are my thoughts?
