  My Name Is Seepeetza: Seepeetza, Tootie, or McSpoot those were the names Martha Stone was called at home on her ranch. But now that she is living and studying at an Indian residential school, her name and everything else about her life have changes. Strict and unhappy nuns, arbitrary and unfair rules and, worst of all, a complete denial of all that being and Indian means to her, govern Martha's new world. Only vacation times at home feed Martha's hunger for the true life she has had to leave behind. Based on her own experiences, this powerful first novel by Shirley Sterling, a member of the interior Salish Nation of British Columbia, is a moving account of one of the most blatant expressions of racism in the history of Canada.
