It talks about the rivalry between the Eskimos and the Indians that exists in the school and the white staff who can't tell the Indians and the Eskimos apart. The story also tells about a white girl named Chickie who was at the school too.
Her father was a storekeeper in a remote village. Chickie identifies with the Eskimo kids she grew up with. The story is filled with kids like her and with orphans. They all band together and form friendships. I loved the language of this story told from a variety of viewpoints - Luke's, Chickie's, Sonny's who is the Indian son of a fatherless family who has lots of responsibility for his younger siblings, Amiq's who is the Eskimo son of a father who drinks, Donna who is an Indian girl who was orphaned and raised until boarding school by another missionary nun.
We see a number of events through their eyes.
We see the army testing the kids with a radioactive drink to see why they are able to survive above the arctic circle. We see the reaction to the assassination of the first Roman Catholic president. We see the protests about proposed nuclear explosions above the Arctic Circle and we see protests about hunting laws. This would be a good story to read with kids to talk about history.
The author tells us that most of the events really happened to various Native kids at government and private boarding schools. Luke is based on her own husband's story. The clash of Indian, Eskimo, and white values is immediate and almost universally unkind or unjust toward non-whites. The title of the book refers to the fact that students were not allowed to use their Indian or Eskimo names, nor were they allowed to speak their native language.
FIve characters tell the story over a five-year period during which Isaac is sent to live with an adoptive family and some of the students are made to drink iodine as a military experiment.

First romance, sorrow, and some joy all take a part in this book. A good read to increase knowledge of Eskimo and Indian rights, with a smooth transition to a comparison with the Civil Rights movement happening at the same time in the lower 48 states. The author's personal connection with the Inupiaq culture comes through in this wonderful tale. Related Searches. Between Two Worlds.
