This story reveals the remarkable life of a Native American boy
named Wassaja, or Beckoning, who was kidnapped from his Yavapai
tribe and sold as a slave. Adopted by an Italian photographer in
1871 and renamed Carlos Montezuma, the young boy traveled
throughout the Old West, bearing witness to the prejudice against
and poor treatment of Native Americans. Carlos eventually became a
doctor and leader for his people, calling out for their rights.
Gina Capaldi's exquisite paintings bring to life excerpts from Dr.
Carlos Montezuma's own letters describing his childhood
experiences. The culminating portrait provides an inventive look
back into history through the eyes of a Native American hero.
