White Grizzly Bear's Legacy: Learning to Be Indian Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The son of a Filipino immigrant and a mother who traced her ancestry to the earliest known leaders of the Sin Aikst--now absorbed into the Colville Confederated Tribes of eastern Washington--paints a vivid picture of his early life in the Indian village of Inchelium, destroyed by the building of the Grand Coulee Dam.

In his distinctive voice, Lawney Reyes relates the history of his people and places that exist now only in memory. The well-known facts of loss and injustice take on a compelling dimension in Reyes's blend of history and autobiography.

Lawney L. Reyes is an award-winning sculptor and author of B Street: The Notorious Playground of Coulee Dam.
