Heid Erdrich's mother showed her daughter both the falsity and the truth in the clich of the "Indian Princess." Sheila O'Connor's mother, who ran a road construction company, was not like other mothers. Ka Vang's mother dodged the hand grenades that her husband's first wife threw on her wedding day.
