Russell, Julia Lowry. “Faces.” In: Earth song, sky spirit: short stories of the contemporary Native American experience. Ed. Clifford E. Trafzer. New York: Doubleday, 1992. Pages 125-132.


This engaging short story uses simple but profound images which function at multiple levels. The “face” and “mirror” images comment on mother-daughter relationships, societal expectations that Native Americans “look Indian,” and the importance of being connected to family and previous generations.
