I was cleaning out a box the other day and found the program for the Cherokee of Georgia 25th Children's Pow-Wow. It included several pages of suggested reading, grouped by age.
I have to find this book of essays.
Funny You Don't Look Like One: Observations from a Blue-Eyed Ojibway by Drew Hayden Taylor
Here's the quote:
"I've spent too many years explaining who and what I am repeatedly, so as of this moment, I officially secede from both races. I plan to start my own separate nation. Because I am half Ojibway and half Caucasion, we will be called the Occasions. And of course, since I'm founding the new nation, I will be a Special Occasion."
