Description

Indian No More by Charlene Willing McManis (Umpqua) with Traci Sorell  (Cherokee) and cover art by Marlena Myles (Spirit Lake Dakota, Mohegan, Muscogee Creek), is about the termination programs in the US and how this affects the life of Regian Petit. Indian No More is the story of Regina Petit and her family and the US bill that signs their Umpqua tribe in Oregan out of existence. She has an Indian number and is counted as Indian, lives and practices her tribal culture, and has Umpqua ancestors. But this bill results in her family becoming part of a relocation program that moves them to Los Angeles, to 58th street, and they are then without community or land. In her new home Regina experiences racism, confronts prejudice and stereotypes.Through the comfort of Chich, her grandmother and her stories, her sister Peewee, making new friends and often comparing her new life with life Grand Ronde reservation, this story unfolds. Highly recommended.
