Abstract
 
Description
Native children across North America are straddling two cultures - traditional Native American and modern day. Many are struggling with the clash caused by retaining Native ways while growing up in contemporary American society.

What happens when Virgil, a Mohawk boy, walks on a high beam, trying to imitate his father?

Louis, a Cree, never thought he would be building the new family canoe after his father falls through the old one.

Betty, who is Koyukon from Alaska, wants to stay home and watch TV with her best friend, but she's in for a real surprise when she experiences her first potlatch.

These contemporary Native stories - some funny, some sad - show children bridging the gap between two worlds in surprising and touching ways.
