Sitting Bull was a Hunkpapa Lakota chief and holy man, born in 1831 in present-day South Dakota. Son of honored Sioux warrior Returns-Again, Sitting Bull idolized his father and wanted to be exactly like him, but he struggled initially in skill; he lacked natural talent for violence, and thus was deemed “Slow” in his early years. A few years later at fourteen, he would assist in war against a rival tribe. He would be given the new name of “Tatanka-Iyotanka”; a Lakota phrase meaning “a buffalo sitting”. Growing up, Sitting Bull’s destiny was seemingly shaped by the conflicts the Native peoples were fronting in the face of white settlers moving in on their land and ways of life.
What is being explained or taught through these stories? A common theme seen throughout the trickster tales is deception. In the tale “From the Winnebago Trickster Cycle” deception is used to prevent starvation of the Trickster and his friends. As winter approaches Trickster an his friends realize that there is no food left from the fall harvest, so Trickster devises a plan to disguise himself as a woman to marry a chief’s son so they “can live in peace until spring comes” (Radin 106).
Such actions imply the voracity of this selfishness that is passed down to the subsequent generation. As they [The latter generation] learn the skillsets of their father, it becomes evident the “wolf-like indenpendece” (259) is instilled through a passage equivalent to “The nights were still cool and they had a fire against it, of a rail lifted from a nearby fence” (260). This reinforces the tribal mentality shown in a conversation with Sarty where he [Abner] advises “You got to learn to stick to your own blood or you ain’t going to have any blood stick to you” (260). Across the spectrum of this manuscript Faulkner maintains Abner as a flat character while introducing the traits of a previous time and proliferate the quirks learned from the
For example, the Iroquois’ creation myth states the man did not want to dig roots from the Great Tree because, “he didn’t like the idea… he knew it was wrong…he gave in… and he was terrified” (34). Whereas, the man (bear) in The way to Rainy Mountain showed aggressiveness. For example, “the bear (brother) came to kill them (the sisters)…it reared against the tree and scored the bark” (55). The men’s roles proved to be far apart in characteristics and behavior within the two creation
Chris McCandless was a guy who thought it would be a brilliant idea to go out into the wilderness and live out there. He made many mistakes with living in the wilderness for starters he was very ill prepared, Chris did not bring enough food to survive and with that he had to find his own food. When Chris started to leave he decided he's going to get rid of all his money and so he burned some of it and gave the rest of the money to charity. Chris hunted little animals and then he killed a moose he ended up not preserving it correctly and he had to get rid of it because it became old and gross. For a guy to get a book and a movie written about his life and ultimate death, do you think that’s right?
Class, One reason for the defeat of the Plains Indians was the decline of the buffalo herds, due to the killing by white hunters. The buffalo was one of the most sacred things to the Native Americans, but was their main source of supplies, because they used every part of the buffalo to help them. Second are the former Indian lands being settled by homesteaders, because this reduced the ability of tribes to migrate freely through the plains. This also did not allow the Indians to hunt for more buffalo herds. Lastly was the hostile encounter with the US Army which provided a few victories for the Indian population although Sitting Bull and the Indians fought stunning battles such as the defeat of the US Calvary at Little Big Horn, in the end
