This book is about some of the life experiences of a retired chief of the Nanticoke Indian Tribe of Delaware. He informs us what it was like growing up in a state that tries to deny your existence. He tell us of the difficulties of trying to maintain your identity and culture in such an atmosphere. He shares some of his experiences in the hope they will promote a greater understanding between the Native Americans and non-Native American in Delaware. Many people in Delaware are not aware that two tribes of Native Americans still exist in the state.
