Harold and Deloris Heiney are renowned Southern Baptist Missionaries to Native Americans, having spent forty-three years (1951-1994) in this specialized field of ministry. One significant and highly publicized historical event in which the Heineys were involved was the seventy-one-day occupation of Wounded Knee by the American Indian Movement (A.I.M.). Harold volunteered at the F.B.I. call center; and he bussed people out from behind the U.S. Marshals roadblock to lead many families to safety, resulting in the opening of doors for ministry among the Lakota people. Harold is of Cherokee descent; and one of his mentors was B. Frank Belvin, the Creek Indian who was the Director of Language Missions for the Home Mission Board. Harold was trained in indigenous ministry to Native Americans, but his approach and outlook - held in common with Deloris - is unique, making this coauthored autobiography a fascinating read.
