From the Publisher:
Offers the story of a young Native American student who, despite the taunting and teasing of his classmates, fought to get the Indian mascot removed from his high school as a way to honor his people's proud past and culture. Reprint.International Reading Association Children's Book Award Winner Determined to sway high school officials to remove disparaging Indian mascots, Evan assumes a struggle that spirals him onto a soul-searching journey and exposes him to a barrage of bullying, taunts, and escalating violence. Marlene Carvell's striking first novel is a timely look at a true story of a mixed-race teen caught up in an exploration of his past, his culture, and his identity.
Annotation:
A high school student named Evan takes an unpopular stand when he asks the PTA to stop using a Native American caricature as the school mascot. Evan's story is told in a free verse format and is based on the experiences of the author's two sons.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"This is well written, though the somber mood never lifts; even the small triumph at the end is subdued. It is a realistically heartening story for teenagers who have a battle to fight, and might also be useful for sparking class discussion." 07/01/2002

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The subject is both unusual and highly topical, and there's considerable appeal in the story of a young person's moral battle against the system." - Deborah Stevenson October 2002
