SUMMARY

Her name was Seepeetza when she was at home with her family. But now that she's living at the Indian residential school her name is Martha Stone, and everything else about her life has changed as well.Told in the honest voice of a sixth grader, this is the story of a young Native girl forced to live in a world governed by strict nuns, arbitrary rules, and a policy against talking in her own dialect, even with her family. Seepeetza finds bright spots, but most of all she looks forward to summers and holidays at home.Based on her own experiences, Shirley Sterling's powerful first novel reveals the impact of a racist school policy on the life of one indomitable young spirit and her family.Shirley Sterling is the author of 'My Name Is Seepeetza' with ISBN 9780613348683 and ISBN 0613348680.
