Wenjack

Wenjack
by Joseph Boyden
Tonight is the night they line us up and then we climb in the water tub, two, or three of us if we're real skinny, and we have to wash the back of the one in front. Then we get out and Fish Belly rubs each of us with a wet towel. This means tomorrow is prayer day. I can tell which niijii, which friend, ran away from the school this week by the long red marks on his back. Ever a lot of red marks. Ever a lot of friends who ran away this week. But Fish Belly teacher has Fish Belly friends who go out and catch them. We have a secret path, but maybe it's not so secret anymore. The Fish Bellies are good at catching Indian children.   One day I will run. One day they won't hurt me anymore.
