Rhymes for Young Ghouls

Red Crow Mi'gMaq reservation, 1976: By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 16 must attend residential school. In the kingdom of the Crow, that means imprisonment at St. Dymphnaâ€TMs. That means being at the mercy of â€oePopper”, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school. At 15, Aila is the weed princess of Red Crow. Hustling with her uncle Burner, she sells enough dope to pay Popper her â€oetruancy tax”, keeping her out of St.Ds. But when Aila's drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of Ailaâ€TMs world is destroyed. Her only options are to run or fight... and Mi'gMaq don't run.
