Abuse is rampant on reservations because the US government system allows exploitation to go on unchecked and without repercussion. Yet genuine hope is available! While multitudes of tribal members are dying from alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide, and violence, personal responsibility and non-governmental solutions can bring real change to Native Americans.Author Lisa Morris reveals the anguishing reality of how the current reservation system played out in of her own family. After a life-changing experience, her husband, Roland, a member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, rejected the mantle of victimhood and blame, became personally accountable, and led their family in a new direction. The greater story within her story is one of spiritual transformation and healing. Readers will gain a deep understanding of the plight of Americans living throughout Indian Country, while experiencing one family’s real-life journey away from decades of trauma, toward hope and victory in Jesus Christ.
