This connects to the way Americans felt like the traditional Native American way was wrong because they didn’t understand it. People in general tend to fear what they don’t understand; which connects Herman and the story of Native Americans because they both were misunderstood and people were afraid of both things to the fact that they wanted to eliminate what Native and Herman had become.
