Danny Bigtree has just moved to the city of Brooklyn with his mother and father. His mother has gotten a job at the American Indian Community House in Manhattan and his father works as an ironworker wherever he can get jobs. So far Danny is not liking the move, he misses the Mohawk Reservation and the surround area. His new school in Brooklyn is not working out for him either. He doesn’t seem to fit in with the other kids. The kids in his class call him “Chief” and tease him about being indian, something he is very proud of. Can he find the courage to stand up for himself and make the best of what he has in Brooklyn?
