Unlike his fellow Wiyot, Benjamin Redwood never felt much animosity for the white settlers. After Tobias Ezrah started New Opportunity, Benjamin Redwood abandoned his Wiyot name and adopted a western name. He worked for the Van Duzens for many years but was never able to save enough money to buy his own land. His friend Jarvis Schrute loaned him some money and he recently bought his own plot of land which he hopes to raise sheep on.
After his assistance in capturing Charles Southard in 1873, Redwood was offered a full-time position as a deputy. After the death of J.B. Truesdale, Redwood became the new town Sheriff.
