    *Starred Review* Regina Petit knew she was Indian because she had a tribal roll number—3669. But in 1954 when the Umpqua, along with other tribes along Oregon's Grand Ronde had their tribal status terminated by the federal government, she was left with an empty sense of who exactly she was. With jacked up prices forcing them off their tribal land and no more government protections, the Petit family took up the Indian Relocation Program's offer of opportunity and new beginnings. What begins as a story of displacement quickly turns into a story of childhood fun and antics colored by Umpqua culture and the racial tensions of the civil rights movement set in the lively and culturally diverse city of L.A. Regina's character is thoughtful and hesitant as her father encourages their family to embrace their "Americanness," while her younger sister, PeeWee, dives head first into their new community. While Regina struggles to make sense of her Indianness in L.A. throughout the book, her grandmother, Chich, grounds her in Umpqua folklore and history, helping her to understand the strength and resilience of her people and that that strength cannot be dictated by land. Included are a glossary of Chinuk Wawa terms, and notes from the co-authors, as well as images of the Grand Ronde Tribal Land and of the author's childhood. Grades 3-6.
