Thirza Defoe and Shawnee Ford, Ojibwa students at the Milwaukee Indian Community Indian School (which is supported by the Potawatomi high-stakes bingo hall), describe what it's like attending a school that teaches drumming, traditional dancing, and traditional ceremonies in addition to math, computer science, and English. The unusual school, which admits students from many different tribes and stresses the similarities between them, is an appropriate example of gambling revenues put to a positive use. Also included in the book are sidebars relating Ojibwa history and Indian contributions to the world. Ages 8 - 12. Reviewed by: Steve Brock
