Summary
When Shin-chi and his sister go off to his first year of Residential School in a cattle truck, she warns him of all the things he must not do. The days are long, he is very lonely and always hungry, but he finds solace down at the river with a gift from his father, a tiny cedar canoe. It seems like a very long time until the salmon swim upriver again and he can finally go home
Summary
Forced to use only their English names and not speak to their siblings at school, Shinchi holds fast to the canoe given to him by his father and looks forward to the day when the salmon return to the river, hopeful that things will then improve for his family and the tribe he loves.
