"Who Am I?" is a powerful memoir by Michelle Rice-Gauvreau that pulls back the curtain on an unsettling chapter of indigenous history. Born in a Mohawk Reservation in Canada, Michelle was illicitly adopted and raised in an abusive home in the United States. Amidst the harsh backdrop of the 1960s and 70s, when mental illness was a forbidden topic and safeguarding measures were scarce, Michelle's story illuminates a path of self-discovery and resilience.
Her life is a testament to the enduring spirit of her Mohawk bloodline as she navigates the trials of coping, understanding, and forging a life path without the foundations of familial love and belonging. This memoir is not only a personal narrative but a spotlight on an issue plaguing indigenous communities worldwide, and particularly North America. "Who Am I?" is an extraordinary tale of tenacity, humor, and the relentless search for identity, family, and happiness.
