Christine begins her narration by expressing how, during the 1960s, everyone who was white  seemed to be having fun. Also, she briefly discusses how political events, including the buildup to the  Vietnam War and hippies' "flower power," affected the reservation, where she lives with Aunt Ida.  Christine, in contrast, was not political; she was enjoying having a woman's body and having sex  with whomever she pleased. In her words, she was "the most popular high school girl on the  reservation." Christine's narration is as much about her brother, Lee, as it is about herself. Lee is the best-looking  teenager on the reservation; Christine is not — she's just popular with the boys. However, she and  Lee have a very close, special sister-brother relationship, except that in Christine's opinion, Aunt Ida  favors Lee more than she does Christine. Aunt Ida and Christine do not get along.
