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.
