Although, Gail is nothing like Wesley and Frank she does not cause harm to the Indian people and she is a woman. Obviously Wesley would not understand but Gail is a woman and although she probably has never gone through that she would want somebody to do the same as she did Marie, for her. Yes, Gail keeping her mouth shut would have prevented every single problem presented to the Hayden family, but that would not have been the right thing to
The guilt of his is unclear answers enlightens him, leading him to tell “Kicking Bird” about the white people. Not only does this highlight his loyalty but also his betrayal to his people(the white people). These shows growth in him not only because he has come to make a clear decision but because he has shown a sense of pride and responsibility towards the tribe after marrying his wife “Standing With a
Proctor was telling Abigail that he is never going to do a sin of committing adultery again like he did. On page fifty you see that Proctor feels a lot of guilt and is starting to feel worse. You can tell he is feeling bad on how he wasn’t loyal to his wife. Abigail says, “Him! Oh, John, I will make you such a wife when the world is white again!
Lakota Sioux Indians--What You Didn’t Know As many of you probably know, most Americans aren’t very knowledgeable about the people who were here before them. The Native Americans. There are so many misconceptions and just plain wrong beliefs of the Lakota and their way of life. Some Americans only see the Lakota Indians as savage, uncivilized, uneducated, conquered people who were dependent on others. Very few really understand who the Lakota were and how their way of life was different from Americans today.
I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life. I also think he was responsible for Doodle’s actual death since he took no precautions to save him. So it seems as if Brother would have been living with guilt either way. How does the theme of innocence tie into this
He is comparable to Nathan in The Poisonwood Bible because he is unable to adjust to the new culture. He is a strong headed Native American who believes that his chi controlled his destiny. At the first of the book Okonkwo thought, "When a man says yes, his chi says yes also." He was a hard worker driven by the fear of becoming like his lazy, shameful father. Okonkwo thought if he worked hard his chi would reward him.
The chapter that stuck out to me most for giving perspective that I lacked prior to reading this book. My favorite quote from chapter being the first, “Mother, I bring sad news: your son was killed facing the enemy.” The mother said, “He is my son.” “Your other son is alive and unhurt,” said the messenger. “He fled from the enemy.” The mother said, “He is not my son.”( chapter-1 pg-1 ).

Even though, he, himself, accepts the worst he still wants people to perceive him as a good person, especially his mom. Steve’s mom’s words cut deeper in him because his mom believes he didn’t do it while he knows he did. 5 days into the trial, his mother comes by and talks to him hoping to make him feel better, “I could still feel Mama’s pain. And I knew she felt that I didn’t do anything wrong. It was me who wasn’t sure.
Native Americans did not fight in the same manner as the British and some of their practices lead to mistrust and conflict with their British allies. The number of Natives also dependent on British gifts of food and clothing was also becoming unsustainable. The alliance would further be hampered by the deaths of strong leaders on both sides that held the fragile alliance together. The British were caught in a difficult situation. Although natives and US soldiers both scalped the dead, killed prisoners, and plundered civilians,
