Indian No More

By Indigo Bookshelf: Voices of Native Youth

"NDIAN NO MORE, by Charlene Willing McManis with Traci Sorell is one of the best books I've ever read. . . . All these amazing Native women worked together to bring Ms. Charlene's story to readers like me. I am not Umpqua. This is not the story of my family or community. But I feel like it belongs to me. It feels so natural reading it. I read it then went back through and looked and different parts I liked to write this. I studied the cover and looked at the photos in back. I fell under its spell. I felt at home. I felt sadness and pride, and that Regina was my friend. Only after did I remember how few books there are like this, and Ms. Charlene was gone from this world. But her book should touch many lives for a long time to come." —Ashleigh, age 13
