He's not an "Indian Chief" -- he is a Mohawk boy.

Danny Bigtree's family has moved to a new city, and no matter how hard he tries, Danny can't seem to fit in. He's homesick for the Mohawk reservation where he used to live, and the kids in his class call him "Chief" and tease him about being an Indian -- the thing that makes Danny most proud. Can he find the courage to stand up for himself?
