Grandmother Spirit

Character Analysis

Grandmother Spirit is powwow famous, and her greatest gift is tolerance (22.37). When she is struck by a drunk driver, her dying words ask that Gerald, the man who hit her, be forgiven. In many ways, Grandmother is the spirit of tradition and the past and her funeral brings the entire Spokane Indian Reservation together (Chapter 23).
