About the Book

Growing up on the Six Nations native reserve, Salt Baby never quite fit in, as a “white” looking “Indian” – fair skin and curly hair made her more of a Shirley Temple type than a Pocahontas type. Salt Baby navigates the native reserve and the city while explaining herself, as well as her blood quantrum, to the world and to “Alligator”: “It’s always different for Indians.”
