The characters Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield and Jacquie Red Feather were taken to live on Alcatraz Island by their mother in "There There." This part of the plot led me to want to know more about the real-life occupation of Alcatraz. Quotes from the novel along with many references to reservation life being a kind of prison by the Occupiers of Alcatraz, led me to look a little further into Native American Incarceration statistics. What I found were alarming statistics and systemic criminalization of Native Americans.
