George Price listens, learns, contemplates, studies, and teaches. He lives with his wife, Barbara, and two of their seven grandchildren on the Flathead Indian Reservation, north of Missoula, Montana. He is an American of several diverse ethnic and cultural ancestries (including Wampanoag, Massachuset, Choctaw, African, French, and Scottish) who has explored human identity issues for all of his life, both personally and professionally. Some questions that he patiently seeks to find answers for (in due time, without anxiety): What are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going?
