I am one of the people who are sympathetic to the plight and history of Native Americans but have never seen a reservation. This book was most educational in illustrating the diversity of challenges and realities faced by people on various reservations and their resilient spirit as they still struggle against thoughtless prejudices and poverty. It was heartbreaking to read about the abject poverty in the midst of the 21st century American society. My hats off to these amazingly strong people, and I hope we can do more to help. I guess the first place to start might be for us non-Indians to acknowledge how little we know about the diverse tribal cultures and traditions and be more sensitive to unthinking racism ingrained in our daily lives. A really good book.
