1 What does the Prologue say about the origins of the Thanksgiving holiday? The meal we commemorate was actually a land-deal meal, not a meal of thanksgiving. It took place in 1776. Two hundred Indians were poisoned from the original Thanksgiving meal. No Indians were actually there. 2 How does Tony Loneman find out he has fetal alcohol syndrome? Maxine tells him when he is six after he beats up his friend for making fun of him about it. His mom tells him and apologizes for drinking. His friend Mario tells him when they are teenagers. He looks it up on the Internet after wondering about it for years. 3 How does Tony feel about the Drome? He thinks it is his power and his curse. He likes how his face looks. He thinks he is stupid because of it. He doesn't care about it or notice it. 4 Why does Tony like the rapper MF Doom? Because he identifies with him. Because he wears a mask. Because of his line, "Got more soul than a sock with a hole." Because they are both Native. 5 What kind of gun does Octavio show Tony? A stolen gun. A 3D-printed gun. A plastic gun from Walmart. Tony's own gun. 6 How does Octavio want Tony to hide the bullets as part of their scheme? Ask a friend to smuggle them in for him. Scatter them in the bushes the night before. Put them in his pockets. Put them in a sock and throw them into the bushes. 7 Where did Dene first think up his graffiti tag, 'Lens'? While on the way to the interview for a cultural grant for his film project. On the bus coming home from school. While hanging out with his uncle Lucas. In an argument with his mother, Norma. 8 Why does Rob say he and his friends are moving to West Oakland? Because it's safer than East Oakland. Because it is where Gertrude Stein grew up. Because his parents lived there. Because it is "dirt cheap." 9 Why does Dene identify with what Gertrude Stein has to say about Oakland? Because he draws a connection between her experience of Oakland and the Native experience across the Americas. Because Gertrude Stein is Native. Because he grew up in the same neighborhood as Gertrude Stein. Because he has always been a big Gertrude Stein fan. 10 What is the Native panelist's critique of Dene's project? He doesn't believe in paying people for their stories. He worries Dene has no real vision for the project. He thinks stories are unimportant. He doesn't think Dene is Native and so questions why he is doing this project. 11 When was the first time Dene held the video camera? At the grant interview. When his uncle Lucas visits for the first time. When his mom told him that his uncle Lucas had died. When he graduated from high school. 12 Where does Opal and Jacquie's mom take them after they are evicted from the yellow house in Oakland? To the Indian uprising on Alcatraz Island. To Opal's father's house. To their uncle Ronald's house. To a different house in Oakland. 13 How did Opal and Jacquie's mom try to cure her cancer? With Western medicine. By going to sweat ceremonies with Ronald, a medicine man. She didn't do anything to treat it. She found treatment on Alcatraz. 14 How does Edwin find out his tribal identity? When he finds his father on Facebook. When he meets his father at his new job at the Indian Center. By doing a genealogy test. By asking his mother. 15 Why does Edwin like the group of DJs called A Tribe Called Red? Because his father told him about them. Because they produce contemporary-sounding Indigenous music and aren't stuck in the past. Because he feels connected to his identity when he listens to them. Because they motivate him to lose weight. 16 Why does Bill disapprove of Edwin? Because he thinks Edwin is too coddled. Because Edwin is a reminder of Karen's ex. Because he sees Edwin as competition for his job. Because he is contemptuous of Edwin's weight. 17 What was Bill's experience in jail like? He educated himself by reading all kinds of books. He became a drug addict. He became very depressed. He met Karen there. 18 How does Calvin feel about his sister Maggie? He misses the way they were close when they were kids. He blames her for his bad luck. He both loves and hates the way she has her life together. He is jealous that Maggie has a child. 19 Why does Jacquie attend the "Keeping Them from Harm" conference in Pheonix? Because she knew Harvey would be there. Because she thought it would be good distraction while she tried to stay sober. Because she felt guilty about her daughter's suicide. Because a grant for her position as a substance abuse counselor required it of her. 20 How does Jacquie stay in touch with her grandsons? She doesn't even know what they look like. She visits them in Oakland. Opal sends her emails with photos; she doesn't speak to them. She talks to them on the phone every once and a while. 21 How many days has Jacquie been sober when she attends the conference? Fifty days. One day. Eleven days. Three hundred days. 22 How does Jacquie know the man running the AA meeting she attends at the conference? She recognizes him from a past AA meeting. He is Opal's ex-lover. He was her rapist when they were teenagers on Alcatraz. He is her ex-husband. 23 What does Harvey offer Jacquie? A ride back to Oakland. Money to compensate for adoption expenses. A lift to the next AA meeting. A drink. 24 What does Jacquie eventually do with the alcohol bottles in the minifridge? She takes them with her on her way back to Oakland. She gives them to Harvey. She smashes them in her room. She throws them in the hotel pool. 25 How did Orvil come into possession of his regalia? He found it on the side of the ride? He ordered it online. He was searching for Christmas presents in Opal's closet. Opal gave it to him as a Christmas present.
