This memoir beautifully weaves personal and family history with stories that represent each animal that forms her family totem. Myers grapples with her at times warring identities. She explores topics such as Indigenous portrayals in popular media, violence against Native women, the death of a language, and anti-Native laws and infrastructures. She is deeply introspective and candid about her loves, losses, battles, and scars.
