  3. 3. One Town, Two Worlds <ul><li>“ Where I come from, kids are divided into two groups. White kids on one side, Indians or First Nations, on the other. Sides of the room, sides of the field, the smoking pit, the hall way, the washroom; you name it. We’re on one side and they’re on the other. They live on one side of the Forks River bridge and we live on the other side. They hang out in their village and we hang out in ours……” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Yellow line: Dare not to cross or Discrimination? <ul><li>“ There’s a yellow line on the school bus as well. It divides the front of the bus from the back– us at the back, them at the front. You can’t see the line, but everyone knows it is there and no one crosses over. It’s just the way it is, as far as I remember it’s the way it’s always been. Ninety minutes to school and ninety minutes back, and no one step a foot in the other territory .” </li></ul>

  6. 6. Yellow line:Where the story starts… <ul><li>The invisible yellow line between two races implies certain alarm. But nobody really knows what is that alarm about.

  7. 7. Yellow line : Where the story goes wild <ul><li>Vince is outraged and determined to fight back. Youngsters from the two communities begin to tease, challenge each other . But then Vince notices Raedawn, a girl from the reserve. Trying to balance his community's prejudices with his shifting alliances, Vince is forced to take a stand, and see where his heart will lead him… </li></ul>
