DEADWOOD, S.D. – Actor Kevin Costner has donated personal items and movie memorabilia to a charity auction that will benefit a Lakota interpreter at his Tatanka tourist attraction in South Dakota.

Costner’s childhood baseball and bat and movie memorabilia including a baseball jacket from the movie “Bull Durham” will be sold at the Saturday auction in Lead.

Costner filmed much of his Academy Award-winning movie “Dances with Wolves” in South Dakota, and his Tatanka attraction near Deadwood tells the story of the North American bison.

Proceeds from the auction will help Phillip Red Bird Frame, who hopes to earn a college degree in sociology.

“A degree would help me open more doors and allow me to help more people,” he said.

Tatanka general manager Stephen Laffey acquired the items for the auction to support Frame’s college fund.

“It’s all going to a really good cause,” he said. “All proceeds are going to a gentleman from South Dakota’s Cheyenne River Reservation who is making a difference, bridging cultural divides, telling the story of his people and making residents the world over understand that we’re all in this together.”
