Born into a magical Cree world in snowy northern Manitoba, Champion and Ooneemeetoo Okimasis are all too soon torn from their family and thrust into the hostile world of a Catholic residential school. Their language is forbidden, their names are changed to Jeremiah and Ga
iel, and both boys are abused by priests.<
>As young men, estranged from their own people and alienated from the culture imposed upon them, the Okimasis
others fight to survive. Wherever they go, the Fur Queen--a wily, shape-shifting trickster--watches over them with a protective eye. For Jeremiah and Ga
iel are destined to be artists. Through music and dance they soar.
