Resource Description

As Vicky Meawasige Reed drives through the night to get to her father’s hospital bed in Canada from her new home in the US, she reflects on her childhood. Once she reaches the hospital she must deal with her father’s diagnosis, family conflict, and the racism she encounters in her home town. This Canadian memoir provides insight into a small town divided by First Nations groups and Caucasians, and First Nations culture. Suitable for grades 9-12, this resource could be used in literature circles or for independent study and can launch discussion and exploration of racism towards First Nations people, spirituality, family, and identity.
