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. Native Americans and Herman can also be compared together because they both went through hardships that most people or other races wouldn’t have survived. Even the physical and mental things that Herman and Native Americans went through can be compared because they both were brutal and unbearable but both found a way to fight

The Search In November of 2004, I was hired, as the Special Education Teacher/Disabilities, by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe Head Start Program, fresh out of college with some experience substituting in the local school districts. The Special Education Department for Head Start was nonexistence and shared the Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist with their Daycare Program or services were contracted out to other companies. However, the services were often limited to specific hours and days of the week. Head Start found that the needs of the students were not being met and evaluations were not completed in a timely manner and personnel change frequently.
In doing so, Jonas figured out that his society was not so perfect after all, and that it did have drawbacks. Since the challenge with utopia is that in order to have one people must give up many privileges, a dystopian society might have different techniques of punishment, types of families, and ways to deal with the elders of the society. Punishment is a way to teach one about mistakes. In The Giver, the community punished the children with a weapon that stung when it was used on them. This is similar to when school teachers used to be allowed to slap children’s wrists with a ruler, but it was not as harsh a punishment.
After reading about the Native Americans and their lives on the reservations I believe they faced considerable difficulties when it came to a reservation lifestyle. However, I think the most difficult aspect of the reservation system for them was the acceptance of more passive roles. I believe this was a major cause of their culture identity being sacrificed. After the Native Americans arrived on the reservations they had to give up their hunter-warrior roles and accept more passive ones (Olson & Beal p.194). I believe the differences that came along with living on the reservations caused changes in the traditional ways of thinking about power and authority so then responsibilities changed also.
There are many ways to disrupt our lives but one of the worst ways in my opinion is procrastination. After all, who wants a life full of regrets through not taking action on time? It is generally thought that we learn to Procrastinate rather than we are born as procrastinators. Procrastination can be learned from ones parents, siblings or other figures of authority as we are growing
In the past I have struggled with my biracial identity. As a child I was confused about which community I belonged in because I am a mix of Navajo and Caucasian. As I got older, I began to question myself and who I was. I felt like I did not belong to either the Native or Caucasian community because in both groups I felt like someone else. I felt as if I had to live two lives that were completely separated.
Ignorance is relevant by people asking what are you, assuming things about your culture, and segregating others. Race in America is a boiling pot of anger, and stereotypes. People tend to assume negative things about other cultures. Finding myself in a segregated ethnic group is a nightmare. Ever since I was little, I have been seen as just an Indian that does not know any better.
2). Respectively, in order to avoid the discriminating practices and to prepare the people with disabilities to the normal life functioning, numerous opportunities for their postsecondary educations have been developed. The equal opportunities have become the major concern of the policy makers at this stage. However, even when the students enroll for the postsecondary education, they tend to face a wide range of barriers, including the lack of professionalism among the staff, the lower expectations, the physical demands.
This trip specifically focuses on youth education and Native American issues. Essentially, my team members are helping out in the classrooms (TAing in a way) and also trying to be a role model for the students by pushing the importance of education and college. A lot of these kids only know this community and many of the elders and their parents do not have a college education, so they do not understand the importance of education. It is hard to see if we are making an impact in such a short amount of time, and I know my 15 other team members are incredibly sad to be leaving the schools. As soon as the kids saw us Monday morning, they were all over us in excitement!

Critical Summary #3: First Nations Perspectives In Chapter eight of Byron Williston’s Environmental Ethics for Canadians First Nation’s perspectives are explored. The case study titled “Language, Land and the Residential Schools” begins by speaking of a public apology from former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He apologizes for the treatment of “Indians” in “Indian Residential Schools”. He highlights the initial agenda of these schools as he says that the “school system [was] to remove and isolate [Aboriginal] children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures, and to assimilate them[…]” (Williston 244).
How are you? I have been doing great! Just being busy around Towson’s campus as usual.

We successfully raised about $130 today for the refugee children’s education in Darfur, Sudan!
