Robert Laurence Binyon, by artist William Strang.
There was a problem adding your email address. Wilson, a poet and scholar from the Achumawe and Atsugewi tribes of northeastern California, came into adolescence in the mids, when his people had all but disappeared through assimilation or extermination.
Blame for part of that disappearance he lays squarely at the door of whites; but, he adds, —the neglect of our Elders to teach us our traditions was equally damaging. When it appeared that his foster parents wanted to strip away his Indian identity, Wilson rebelled, for which he was sent off to a boarding school where the young California Indian charges were locked in their rooms at night and punished by day for minor infractions.
Wilson recounts these horrors matter-of-factly but doesn—t dwell on them; instead, he celebrates a teacher who sagely corrected his compositions, encouraged him to improve himself, and urged him to become a writer. Readers have reason to be grateful to that teacher as well.
Wilson is a careful and compassionate observer of his life and those of other young Indians, and his book is a fine addition to the growing library of Native American autobiography.Aug 23, · Mix - The Kingsmen - Just As The Sun Went Down YouTube Gold City Reunion - featuring fathers and sons on Glory Road - .
