While some roles may naturally make a person belong on Lewis Island (e.g. Lewis family membership), “belonging” is a trajectory of more or less connection, determined ultimately by people’s commitment to the Big Stories, particularly those of tradition and the communal values of civility, kindness, and connection. This chapter begins with an explanation of how one becomes a crew member and what that means, then moves to how anyone comes to “belong” on the island. The discussion then moves to the wider issue of ethnic, gender, age, ability, and religious diversity. While the Lewis Fishery and Lambertville have long been sites of noteworthy acceptance, this chapter traces how individual biographies and wider social trends have interacted with inclusive strategies on the island as part of larger cultural changes.
