Brian is a rookie reporter and the only Indigenous writer in the newsroom. He is tired of being forced into reporting on the common crime stories that stereotype his community, the nearby Tuscarora reservation. But when a mysterious roadside assault lands Tim, a white man, in the hospital, Brian cannot tell just another bad story from the rez. Tim is the brother of Brian’s mother’s late boyfriend who Brian has known for many years. Through flashback reflections of Brian’s childhood, poetry, black and white art that opens each new thematic section and slice-of-life stories on the reservation, My Good Man reflects Brian’s attempt to create balance between Haudenosaunee and American life, as he fights to tell the story of his people with nuance.
