Finding young adult novels which are set in Canada and have an urban First Nations context is extremely difficult because there are precious few. A Woman of Her Tribe merits attention because of its approach to a young person's struggle between traditional and contemporary worlds. Set in rural Vancouver Island and Victoria, the novel deals candidly with a young woman's change into womanhood, and the incredible resonsibility of decisions. Threr are worthy lessons that can be taken from this novel, such as respect for the land, sacred traditions, and the importance of relationships. The story effectively brings to life the tradtional ways of the Nootka First Nations people on Vancouver Island, Canada. My choice is to have older students, twelve to seventeen, read this novel.

I thought that this book was very informative about things that happen to a maturing girl. This book is about a girl, named Annette, that leaves her home in Canada with her mother. She is half Nootka Indian. While she is there she goes to a school that is called St. Johns Chapel. She is teased and mocked because of her looks and race. She makes a new friend, Katie Danbor, despite it all. Annette feels that she is torn between her Nootka background and her present American. I thought that this book shows what life is really about, it doesn't sugar coat the bad news. It expresses how you have one really good friend and alot of people that you don't like and alot of people that don't like you. It shows the reality about everything. It also shows that some people don't have everything and they are still able to hold there heads up high and make it on there own.
