Product Description

From Booklist

Teacher Renee LaRoche lives and works among her fellow Red Earth Ojibwa on Minnesota's northern plains. She turns amateur sleuth when priceless ceremonial artifacts are missing and the tribal chief is found with a bullet in his back. Her white lover, Samantha, who already wonders whether love will ever bridge the cultural gap between them, soon despairs of diverting Renee from an increasingly dangerous path of investigation. "Suits" (i.e., the FBI investigators responsible for Indian affairs) come to complicate the case, yet Native American wisdom prevails. Meanwhile, readers will learn Ojibwa words of greeting and blessing as they enjoy a lesbian mystery that adds some cultural diversity to that subgenre. Whitney Scott --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars SLOW MOVING Aug. 2 2000
By Bonita L. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
A rash of thefts and desecrations of Native American artifacts and graves has hit the reservations throughout the south and midwest. The Ojibwa tribe finds its ceremonial objects stolen from the reservation's school. Trouble doesn't stop there for the tribal chairman is found dead. In the midst of these events the tribal dreamer, school teacher and sometime sleuth enters to solve the mystery.
Meet Renee La Roche the above described Ojibwa dreamer who attempts to regain her tribe's ceremonial objects in addition to dealing with other challenges in her personal life. Struggling in her relationship with her white lesbian lover, dealing with the rebelliousness of her teenage daughter and attempting to help another Ojibwan come to terms with himself, Renee has quite a bit on her shoulders. How she attempts to juggles these challenges in addition to solving the theft and murder will focus your attention.
Although the theme and all the elements of a good story are there this book is very slow moving. You are bogged down with meaningless information before you even get to the murder. Renee's problem with her lover is unclear. Is it due to cultural, racial or economic differences that cause the tension? The same problem emerges when you try to find out just how Renee gets herself involved in the investigation. Is it because she is the tribal dreamer or what? Quite a bit of technical questions need to be answered in this novel. It is slow moving but has the potential for greater adventure and depth.
