Caezaah Wiggington never had it easy. He is unable to express himself verbally. Labeled as slow or stupid, sometimes both, growing up he made an easy target for those too quick to judge. Now in his early twenties, Caezaah works as a late night dishwasher and shares a one room apartment with a family of mice. Despite past events and current circumstances, Caezaah believes that everyone gets his day. He prepares for his. He envisions that when his day comes, he will rise from the lowly ruins to high respect because of his gift. Caezaah's gift is dancing. And, his day has arrived. Although his plans and preparations are repeatedly disrupted, he continues to dance toward his destiny. Against overwhelming evidence to the contrary and a series of obstacles, Caezaah is certain that by nightfall he will no longer be known as Wiggy or Babble Boy, but as the Fancy Dancer, Mister Fancy Dancer.Author's note:After brainstorming with more than 30 eager and enthused fifth graders (and one third grader) at Whittier Family School in Camden, I channeled their dreams and insights into this story, our story. I returned to Whittier for a wonderfully received reading and stimulating discussion.I heard many insightful comments. The wisest of all may have come from a student who had just joined the class and was not part of the session that gave birth to the plot and characters. When I asked for ideas on how to deal with bullies, detractors, and adults who mislabel you and write you off, this young man responded with one word, “SUCCEED.” Ironically, when I started reading the book to the class this young man immediately put his head down on his desk. I found it kind of disturbing that he so quickly chose to tune me out. I instinctively labeled him as disrespectful, indifferent, arrogant or unable to comprehend at this level. Then with one word – “SUCCEED” – he taught me that he who leaps to label others does so at his own peril. I hope when you read Mister Fancy Dancer, you will receive the lesson that not everyone develops according to plan. I also hope, that like Caezaah, you will be inspired to SUCCEED when the odds are stacked up against you.

In English, I’n-Lon-Schka means "playground of the eldest son." The dance, in which women are allowed only a peripheral role, celebrates traditional masculine values while helping to break down factionalism and feuding within the tribe. The participants, who now number in the hundreds, assemble each June in three Oklahoma communities-Pawhuska, Hominy, and Grayhorse-where the Dance Chairmen, the Drumkeeper (an eldest son of the tribe), and the dance organization have been preparing for the dance throughout the year. The I’n-Lon-Schka is religious in content and continues to establish conduct and ways of living for tribal members.
