Once I could animate my warriors to battle: but I cannot animate the dead.” Native Americans fought back against the United States but many were killed during battle.

Beginning in the early 19th century a disease named consumption swept the American nation, killing “one in seven of all the people who had ever lived”.

At one point they have to get out of the train and hide from the policemen and run after the train again. Sayra’s father says “More than half of these people will die before we get to the United States” in a desperate manner (Fukunaga 2009).
