  • Indian Horse
  • By Richard Wagamese
  • When his brother dies, Saul's parents leave him with his grandmother to go give their son a proper burial.
  • "We'll be gone a spell. Can you look after Saul? Better he waits here with you."(Wagamese 32)
  • "He'll be fine with me. There's food. We have snares and the net."(Wagamese 32)
  • Saul's grandmother passes away and he is taken away to St Jerome's Indian Residential School.
  • "They took me to St Jerome's Indian Residential School...St Jerome's took all the light from my world...we'd driven two days to get there."(Wagamese 43)
  • "Have you ever heard of hockey?"(Wagamese 56)
  • "No. What is it?"(Wagamese 56)
  • Father Leboutilier introduces Saul to hockey and he soon falls in love with the sport.
  • "It's a game. Maybe the greatest game. It's played on ice with skates and it's very fast, very exciting."(Wagamese 56)
  • Using the game as an outlet from the horrors occurring around him, Saul begins to practice his skills in the mornings after his daily chores.
  • "I became a bird. An ungainly bird at first, but a creature of the air nonetheless."(Wagamese 64)
  • Fred Kelly, after watching him play, is impressed with Saul's skills, so he invites him to live in Manitouwadge and play for his reserve team; The Moose.
  • "Right now, we're down a centre on the third line. Wondered if maybe you'd wanna come play with us?"(Wagamese 95)
