About the Author

"That's the train you'll ride on" Papa said. "My little girls, I'm going to miss you so much" cried Mama. As the train blew its loud whistle, we slowly began to move. I cried until their faces faded in the distance. Helene tried to console me and whispered, "Tomorrow my sister . . . tomorrow we'll go home" We were shipped off to a government boarding school. Indians must be civilized! We must recreate him! Teach them the white man's ways! As time passed, I forgot Mama and Papa and all that was before. Did the government succeed in recreating me? When we were told we would go home for the summer, sadness engulfed me. A sadness I knew I felt before. I tried to picture home, but the memories seemed to be forgotten. Three long years had passed since Helene said, "Tomorrow my sister". Metha Parisien Bercier has written numerous documentaries and historical publications of the Metis culture. She taught in the schools on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation sharing her love of their unique language, legends, songs and dance. Now she has written her childhood autobiography of what it was like for her to be taken away from her family and forced to attend a government boarding school in the 1920's. Metha is 90 years young and lives on the Turtle Mountain Reservation, Belcourt, North Dakota, and still shares her childhood memories, stories, and culture to family and friends.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this memoir. Metha Bercier was sent away from home to the Wahpeton, ND, Indian School when she was 5 years old. Her two older sisters also went. They did not get to return to visit their family for 3 years. The book is a fascinating story of adjustment as Metha learned a new language, new customs and all of the new material that kids learn in the first couple of grades.

Highly recommend for its honesty about a subject with historical value and personal growth.

I grew up in the same area as the author, it was interesting to read first hand how everything was back in the day. Now days it is nothing like that. It was a good read. I would recommend that anyone who lives/lived on the turtle mountain reservation to read it.

I found this book sad and happy at the same time. Sad for the little children and so happy when they were re-united with their family. Excellently written
