From the Missoula Writing Collaborative 

Children in schools on the Flathead Indian Reservation are working with professional writers to create poems during a weekly workshop developed by the Missoula Writing Collaborative. This is a poem by Sadler, a fifth grader from Ronan, who was working with poet Caroline Keys.
