Macy is one of Daunis’s former classmates. She’s full of herself, sexy, and has a knack for dispensing cutting insults with just enough truth to them to be devastating. Still, despite antagonizing each other off and on throughout the novel (and throughout their childhoods in the Sault), Macy and Daunis do show they care about each other: Macy helps Daunis in the locker room after Daunis reinjures her shoulder, while Daunis warns Macy to stay away from Grant Edwards. At the end of the novel, it’s a relief when Daunis realizes that Macy didn’t attend the pansy ceremony associated with the powwow, indicating that Macy hasn’t suffered sexual abuse.
