From the publisher

A contemporary middle grade story about confronting bullying and prejudice Danny Bigtree's family has moved to Brooklyn, New York, and he just can't seem to fit in at school. He's homesick for the Mohawk reservation, and the kids in his class tease him about being an Indian--the thing that makes Danny most proud. Can he find the courage to stand up for himself? "A worthy, well-written novella." --Kirkus Reviews "This appealing portrayal of a strong family offers an unromanticized view of Native American culture, and a history lesson about the Iroquois Confederacy; it also gives a subtle lesson in the meaning of daily courage." --Publishers Weekly "With so many Native American stories set in the misty past, it's great to read a children's book about an Iroquois boy who lives in the city now. Bruchac weaves together the traditional and the realistic as Danny's ironworker father tells stories of his people's history and heroes, stories that give Danny courage to confront his schoolyard enemies and make friends with them." --Booklist

First line

"Hey, Chief, going home to your teepee?"

From the rear cover

He's not an "Indian Chief" -- he is a Mohawk boy.

Danny Bigtree's family has moved to a new city, and no matter how hard he tries, Danny can't seem to fit in. He's homesick for the Mohawk reservation where he used to live, and the kids in his class call him "Chief" and tease him about being an Indian -- the thing that makes Danny most proud. Can he find the courage to stand up for himself?
