Sad News About Robin Poor Bear

“This weekend we received sad news about the subject of the Independent Lens/FRONTLINE film Kind Hearted Woman. Robin Poor Bear, a.k.a. Charboneau, passed away this Friday at home in North Dakota. We will continue to share updates as they are released.

Our hearts here at Independent Lens go out to Robin’s family, especially her two children. It was not that long ago that Robin sent us an update on their lives. May her memory continue to be a shining light for her kids, and may her story continue to be an inspiration to women and girls who have been victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Rest in peace, Robin.

Information about services for Robin, including a place you can share your own thoughts and memories about her, can be found here.”
