This is the true story of a Yavapai boy called Wassaja. In his language, this name meant “Beckoning.” Wassaja was only five years old when Pima Indians kidnapped him and sold him to a white man. Thirty years later, the boy named Beckoning has grown up to become Dr. Carlos Montezuma. His work for the rights of Native Americans made him a model of hope for his people. The story is told in his own words.
