A story about the life, times and lineage of Roy Daniel Bailey. Roy, a Southeast Alaska Tlingit, was born in 1926, in a culture that was in disarray due to many factors. There were conflicting opinions within the culture as to the best way for Tlingits to raise their children within the alien dominant culture. Should they encourage assimilation or resist? Disarray also existed because of the seemingly inherent distrust the dominant culture had of all persons of darker complexion and different ways of looking at the world. The larger revolution took place 20-40 years earlier and Roy's generation was the second generation of children living a life of continuing cultural change and disintegration in a white culture that was completely at home with ideas of racial and cultural superiority.
This book tells Roy's story of life as a child and young adult learning how to live in this confusing world. He met overt discrimination early and frequently. However, this book also shows his indominatable spirit, his sense of humor and refusal to be cast into any man-made mold. From the loss of his family to the loss of his beloved culture, he marches through life with his head high and love in his heart. There are many stories of this generation of Tlingits and their individual struggle for identity and value. It is the hope of the author that more of these stories will be forthcoming so that future generations might better understand those who lived in this time period.
