Two Métis sisters are taken from their parents as young children and reared in separate foster homes — doing all they can to maintain the ties between them and trying in different ways to live in a society that rejects and abuses them. To varying degrees both sisters struggle with learned shame, and, in a narrative unsweetened by sentiment or apology, how one of them summons the strength to face her demons is their shared story. Adapated for high school from the award-winning novel In Search of April Raintree. — Oyate
Product Description: The great plains of North America was once home to great herds of bison. The Aboriginal peoples who lived there revered the bison and relied on them for food, clothing, and shelter. Into one of these great herds, Little White Buffalo was born in the 19th century. In this heartfelt story by the author of the classic In Search of April Raintree, Little White Buffalo retells her life — a life that coincides with the devastation of the bison, destroyed by hunters and the coming of the railway.
