By way of illustration, the seven sisters came to the stump of a tree while being chased by a bear, whose goal was to kill them. When they got to the stump, the tree bade they climb upon it, which in fact saved them. Therefore, the bear represents the aggressiveness of humans and animals and how they kill others, while the tree represents life and safety. This creation myth also supports and validates social customs and values. For example, the bear (boy) signifies the dominance and violence of men.

Sitting Bull was a Hunkpapa Lakota chief and holy man, born in 1831 in present-day South Dakota. Son of honored Sioux warrior Returns-Again, Sitting Bull idolized his father and wanted to be exactly like him, but he struggled initially in skill; he lacked natural talent for violence, and thus was deemed “Slow” in his early years. A few years later at fourteen, he would assist in war against a rival tribe. He would be given the new name of “Tatanka-Iyotanka”; a Lakota phrase meaning “a buffalo sitting”. Growing up, Sitting Bull’s destiny was seemingly shaped by the conflicts the Native peoples were fronting in the face of white settlers moving in on their land and ways of life.
From the book Crispin the Cross of Lead by Avi, the 13 year old protagonist Crispin started off as a runaway from his home in Stromford Village after his mother died because he was wrongly accused of thievery, thus resulting in him being declared a wolf’s head. While on the run Crispin met Bear, who challenged him, protected him, and taught him. In the end, Crispin’s new self was challenged as he risked his life to save Bear in Great Wexley. Throughout the story Crispin matures tremendously, starting off as timid and sinful, then growing to question his background and be more courageous, and finally becoming free and brave. Crispin began the start of the story as a fearful and cowardly young boy.
At the beginning of the book, Crispin has no idea about what freedom is or how you get to freedom. This is shown a couple times, particularly during the scene that is after Crispin finding out he has been declared a wolf’s head, which is someone deemed less than human and can be killed by anyone. After that scene Father Quinel tells Crispin that Crispin should run to one of the big towns like Great Wexly and if he can stay under the radar for one year and a day that he would be free. Father Quinel even says that Crispin could be anything he even says that he could be a knight or a lord or even a king. After Father Quinel tells Crispin this stuff he is extremely
I didn't know he had the ability to snarl." (Steinbeck, chunk 4). This means he didn't know his dog could do this, but his dog did it for him, and now he knows his dog will stand up for him. Another evidence is " Less than a mile from the entrance I saw a bear beside the road, and it ambled out as though to flag me down. Instantly a change came over Charley."
The bears were eating our friends raisinets. We were all in tents and we all heard the bears. I never saw the bears because I was too busy being scared in the tent. The dad’s in the group were the ones who got rid of the bears. My mom called the police(park rangers) and they didn’t help very much.
