Shani was a 26-year-old Native American born on an Indian Reservation. She was one of seven children, and the oldest girl in her family. When Shani was 7 years old, she went to live with her maternal grandparents because of her parents’ divorce and chronic alcoholism. Two younger brothers continued to live with her mother, and the remaining four children were dispersed among paternal relatives. Shani never saw her father or four siblings again. Her grandparents raised her off the reservation in what she described as a “middle-class home.” She attended and received her diploma from a public school when she was 18 years old.
Meanwhile, her two brothers living with her mother continued to live in extreme poverty. They both started using drugs and alcohol during middle school, and failed to complete high school. Because she felt uncomfortable about the privileges she received in comparison with her two brothers, Shani felt it was her responsibility to return to the Reservation to help her mother and brothers. She obtained a job as a preschool teacher, which included simple housing for herself and her family members. Her brothers continued to struggle with drug addiction, which also included troubles with the local authorities regarding illegal activities. Her mother continued to drink and could not work because of chronic diabetes and obesity. Shani tried to build new relationships and start a family of her own but had several failed relationships because of her brothers’ and mother’s behaviors, and their growing dependency on her.
