This story features Lula, the author’s grandmother, who, at an early age, became a widow of a full-blood Creek. He represented his nation which, then, tried to maintain their own adherence of customs and culture which in time was quickly disappearing. Although the erosion of such traditions is obvious to all characters, it is more noticeable to the Indians themselves, especially in their dialog with the Dawes Commission and the United States Government. This more complex picture of interaction between these two separate cultures is far more fascinating than the “black and white” portrayals commonly found in the media today.
