I also didn 't know that Native Americans were beaten for speaking their native language but when WW2 came they were welcomed into the military and allowed to speak their native language because it benefited the military. My reaction to the chapter was that learned many things about the Native Americans that I didn 't know about. I noticed that in this chapter of Ambrose that it has many point of views.
