The "you" character could be a couple of people. The first option that came to my mind was a teacher. Even though she was at a Native American school, the teacher could have been a different nationality. If Rita had a very strong cultural background as a result of her heritage, there could have been a chance that the teacher did not want to tolerate it. Rita mentions that she talks, thinks, and creates just like him or her but yet they are different. The only problem with this option is that I would find it hard to believe that he or she would single out one little girl out of many other Native Americans that would likely have the same background. The tone that Rita has towards the "you" is angry at first and then she changes and wants to help him or her to have a better understanding of her.
