As a diplomat representing the Creek people, Grayson A confederate soldier, pioneer merchant, rancher, newspaper publisher, and town builder, George Washington Grayson also served for six decades as a leader of the Creek Nation. His life paralleled the most tumultuous events in Creek Indian and Oklahoma history, from the aftermath of the Trail of Tears through World War I. As a diplomat representing the Creek people, Grayson worked to shape Indian policy. As a cultural broker, he explained its ramifications to his people.

Living in a period of upheaval in the Creek Nation between 1843 and 1920, Grayson survived the aftermath of removal, the Civil War, the pressure for land allotment, and the eventual tribal dissolution. Warde believes that Grayson’s life epitomizes Creek history during this period. Through the biography of Grayson, therefore, Warde also hopes to provide a corollary to Angie Debo’s classic, The Road to Disappearance: A History of the Creek Indians (1941), which ends with the 1906 dissolution of the Nation. When Grayson, along with several others representing the Creek Nation, enrolled in Arkansas College at Fayetteville in 1859, he more fully exposed himself to American society. Through daily contact with American students and the hospitality of the townspeople, Grayson came to feel much at ease with non-Indians.

George Washington Grayson, also known as Tulwa Tustunugge (Wolf Warrior), (May 12, 1843 - December 2, 1920) (Muscogee Creek), was a businessman, merchant, rancher, publisher of the Indian Journal, writer, and leader of the Creek Nation during the period when Indian Territory was dissolved to prepare of Oklahoma statehood. Of partial European ancestry, he identified as Creek and supported the nation, working for the proposed State of Sequoyah, to be a Native American state.

From early manhood through a long life of service to his people in the Creek Nation, the subject of Mary Jane Warde's new biography bore two names: Yaha Tustunuggee (Wolf Warrior), and George Washington Grayson. The double nomenclature both reflected this native leader's cultural persona and served as a symbolic reminder of the duality of his existence.
