Growing up on a reservation or in a Canadian First Nation community means a teen must balance two worlds. These young adults usually live in rural areas. Their lives are different from either urban Native or urban Anglo people, not only because of the rural nature of their lives but also because of the rich traditions of their own cultures.

What do these Native teens do for entertainment and fun, sports, and education? What are their traditions and beliefs? What are the challenges they face, and what are their hopes for the future? This book tells the stories of various First Nation and Native American youth who balance their lives between two cultures. As you discover the answers to these questions, you will also discover all these teens have to offer North America.
