I chose this theme because, in the book, passing traditions on is a major part of the characters’ culture. Passing traditions on is a practice that is important to many cultures and it effectively connects generations of people through experiences and stories. A quote from the book that demonstrates the theme, shows a character 's viewpoint of passing traditions on. “‘These are the beliefs of our Ojibway people. We sustain the beliefs, and the beliefs sustain us.
In the stories “Sacajawea” by Kathleen Krull and “A picture book of Sacajawea” by David Adler all connect to the theme and central idea. The Theme in these books and the theme I learned from Sacajawea is to follow your dream girl or not just like Sacajawea discovered something very intriguing and cool. The main idea in “A picture book of Sacajawea” is showing you how Sacajawea met Lewis and Clark and how she helped them throughout
But, I think that he is a hero for many reasons. Firstly, although he never treated people nicely (like most explorers) he did treat them with respect. Another, why Cabot should be seen as a hero is because he granted King Henry VII with land that England could now conquered. “Cabot and his crew quickly sailed back to England, where he was welcomed as a hero.” According to the website, http://mrnussbaum.com/explorers/john_cabot/ . Which basically means that Cabot did such good for England that people treated them with respect and honor.
Basso expands the conciseness of his readers by showing the wisdom, manners, and morals of the rich culture of the Apache. Wisdom Sits in Places allows the readers to connect on a deeper level with the history of the Apache by going on a journey to discover their very interesting lives. The first chapter in Wisdom sits in Places is all about an introduction to the Apache world and the significance behind the names at each location. The Apache use places and names as a tool to
She then also goes on to say “..wisdom and penetration are the fruit of experience…”(lines 35 and 36). She is trying to use that appeal of this is a fact and it has been proven time and time again. Abigail is trying to make her son have a moment of clarity and see that this voyage is a good thing for
(Lee, Harper chapter 24) In Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird one of the more interesting characters happens to be Miss Maudie Atkinson. Miss Maudie proves her extensive knowledge of Atticus, as well as her wisdom behind the peoples’ ways in this quote. Because people trust Atticus they know he will do the right thing. She proves time and again that she knows more about Maycomb county than anyone else. Friend to both Jem and Scout, Miss Maudie always proves that she possesses exceptional characteristics.
She is our interpreter, when we met with the Shoshone she helped bribe them into getting the horses to us. She is also great at identifying landmarks, since she got kidnapped when she was 12 she knows her way around. Resourcefulness is another great skill Sacagawea has, she spotted different plants that can be used for medicine and food. I think her best trait is how good of a leader she is, she was the 3rd captain of the journey. Sacagawea has a kid, and that also proves how skilled she is.
¨History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.¨ This is a quote said by Winston Churchill who had definitely lived up his saying. Winston Churchill was thought by many that his war tactics were bad, that his views on certain situations were wrong, and that by giving his speeches were a sign of weakness. However, Winston Churchill had won World War II as prime minister, and had become a widely known politician for Britain. As well as his speeches were thought by many to be some of the best speeches ever written. Winston Churchill should get more praise for what he is doing, because he was an outstanding politician, wrote incredible speeches, and became prime minister for Britain and Won World war II.
She was a brave soul who wanted peace and was very smart for her age. She would’ve done anything that was good for her tribe, hints her staying and not going back to Europe to be with the man she “loved”. Needless to say history can’t always be trusted. Pocahontas was never emotionally attached to John Smith, she may have saved his life however the story wasn’t the way John Smith said it to
My character, Jay Gatsby appears in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s historical fiction novel, The Great Gatsby. I believe, Mr. Gatsby should win the award for “The Most Determined Person.” By determined, I mean he is steadfast in achieving a goal despite difficulty or delay. Some critics will state he represents The American Dream, yet he is much more than that. Set in New York during the 1920s, the novel is told from the perspective of Nick Carraway, who is the new neighbor to Mr. Gatsby. Gatsby is introduced as a very wealthy but mysterious man.
She took them to Boreman pass. She provided much more than a guide and interpreter for their expedition. She kept negotiations with tribes encountered peaceful. For women were never present in war parties. The men would have died without her knowledge of camas roots.
Many people believe that Thomas Jefferson is a powerful individual who helped form our country, and was a great leader through his presidential career. He made the best out of difficult situations, when he knew the complete situation had to remain unsolved, and he also wrote the Declaration of Independence for the help of our country. On the other hand, it can also be debated that Thomas Jefferson is a hypocritic man that nearly destroyed our military,
The book also tells us that despite men seeing themselves as superior, they appreciate the efforts of women, and that is why Robinson plagiarized Ellingson’s academic work twice. Despite the plagiarism, she was humble and never protested, an act
Today, there is an award given out every year to a member in a government office for a courageous act made. The last person to receive this great award was Bob Inglis, former congressman. He won the award for courageously changing his view on environmental issues the U.S. had, this party cost him his reelection as he practically rebelled against congress over the idea of climate change. It 's great to see that this country, considered to be the best in the world, has had great leaders with such great accomplishments as John F.
The process of the Native Americans mind, helped them discover conglomerate uses for the Maguey plant. “The plant itself serves as firewood and for fencing fields”(Document 2). Just these two things this plant can do makes life better and easier for the Mesoamericans. When the Europeans came to Mesoamerica, they also discovered the uses of this plant and how they could use its resourcefulness to help them build a new empire in Mesoamerica. Anything that was necessary for survival, the Native Americans attempted to procure, “they were taught all that was needed for them to know by the way of service, knowledge, wisdom, and prudent living” (Document 4).
