Maynard B - "Join the Tribe" - DOS 08-28-1979

Maynard B story “Join the Tribe” can be found on the following page of the Big Book (3rd edition  Page 474)

Maynard was born on a Maliseet Indian reservation in Canada, the oldest of thirteen children.

He had his first drink in his early teens. But he was afraid of his father, whom he calls “Tall Man,” so he didn’t drink much in the beginning. But he thinks he was an alcoholic from the first drink.

Maynard tells Indians: “Don’t be afraid to join A.A. I once hear people say only Indians crazy when drunk. If so, A.A. full of Indians. Join the tribe!”
