Secondary Source Analysis In order to create his ideal Native American standing within the American Government, which includes the non-indigenous portion of the world acknowledging and understanding Native American issues with the United States and Internationally, Walter R. Echo-Hawk, in his A Context for Understanding Native American Issues, delves into the United State’s past Indian affairs as well as his goals for achieving this ideal. It is important to consider the author’s attitude towards the topic, his desired audience and the devices he used when analyzing the strength of his arguments. Echo-Hawk brings up the point, during the beginning of chapter two, that the general public is unaware of much of the happenings between the United
"The Grave of the Fireflies" is a historic piece of anime set in World War II. This is one of the best dramas I have seen. The animations are one of the best ways to describe the series of events the protagonist go though. I don 't think there was the possibility of the same story having the same impact as a live action film. Setsuko and Seita are brother and sister living in wartime Japan.
To tell a story is one of the earliest cultural traditions. Stories have shaped and enhanced our lives for many years. Storytelling is an essential theme and symbol in Sherman Alexie’s story, “This is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona.” Even though storytelling is a large aspect of the narrative in the short story, it is even more important and emphasized in the movie adaptation. The movie, Smoke Signals, does a more effective job using storytelling. The first time the reader meets Thomas he is telling stories to himself.
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
Flynn lives in the San Francisco bay area, on the other side of the golden gate bridge. Flynn was born in a little suburban town in Arizona.

Flynn has a weird love of answering phone calls, especially on the landline.
Proud To Be (Mascots),” produced by the National Congress of American Indians, convinces the audience of the importance and necessity of changing the mascot of the Washington Redskins to something not offensive or racist towards Native Americans or any other group. Throughout the video, rhetoric provides levels of techniques in language and imagery in order to persuade the audience. The intended audience, mainstream American football fans, and their relationship with the speaker establish what group of people the ad needs to convince for the mascot to change. The video’s use of ethos, pathos, and logos through one word descriptions and images serve as the most effective visual rhetoric to the argument. Music, diction, imagery, suspense, and
A code, still undeciphered to this day, should be given major credit for the US’ success during the war. The Navajo Code Talkers were Native Americans who translated, encoded, and decoded messages during World War II. (Demma) What the code talkers accomplished amounts to much of the US’ success at Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal. After the Choctaw code talkers success in World War I the US was open to new code ideas during World War II. As normal American citizens learned that the American codes were being deciphered, an
Character Analysis on Ponyboy: Academic Essay The Outsiders, Written by S.E Hinton is a good influence on many teens that feel like Ponyboy. I felt like Ponyboy and I have an our very strong differences and we are both alike om the same way. The novel has been translated into many different languages and is taught at middle School levels all across the world. My Favorite quote was on page 3 because he said “I’m not saying that either Greasers or Socs are better, That’s just the way things are. He meant that all people are equal and he doesn’t judge people by how much money they have or if they have a better life style.
What are the connections between the frontiers impacts and the style of an American way of life and to what extent the frontiers have affected the American Values? Why are the Americans still satisfied with the notion of frontiers heroism that shows in movies and TV shows today despite their awareness in persecuted acts against the Native Indian?
“One of the greatest glories of the public school was its success in Americanizing immigrants” Christakis quoted Ravitch in paragraph 20 is what surprised me because I have never heard of this concept before. Personally, I believe that would depend on the student. For example, one of my friends is from the Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa) and at first she was not really Americanized, like she did not use slang, she was not procrastinating. But, as time went on she made more American friends and became accustomed to America that was when she did start using slang and procrastinating. I agree with Christakis when she said “public schools also provide students with crucial exposure to people of different backgrounds and perspectives.” It
The laws for this territory are called the Northwest Ordinance. It secured basic rights for the Americans living in the territory, but it has some clauses that are greatly important. The most important law was that there were to be no slaves in the new territory. Any people living in the Northwest territory had to be free people. Religion is also encouraged and recommends using the Bible in teaching.
Many of these documents are to show favor to the natives, so it seems pretty one sided. This may mean the documents and other items that were collected were only collected from one part of the nation. There are also many primary sources that are electronic resources. One of these sources is titled “Andrew Jackson and the age of American power”, which does not seem like it will include much about the treatment of native americans, however one section includes conversations, documents such as letters and essays all by the Jackson administration, with the removal of indians as their topic. Finally I found another electronic resource that discusses the forced relocations of the natives.
Name: Ashutosh(Osh) Bhattarai Date: 8/30/15 Period: 5 Chapter and Title: Chapter 4 Red Eyes Questions: • Native Americans have been pretty much been misinformed in most of history • They are represented from the point of view of Europeans and barely think from their point of view • However the textbooks have been improving in the way they have been presenting their information on the Native Americans • Other authors of history textbooks are criticizing for using disrespectful words such as half-breeds and savages • Some authors how bias as they clearly favor the white Europeans as they are described as settlers and not
Hi Ali, I have a question regarding HSU 's American Indian College Motivation Day. It sounds like a unique opportunity and I would love to be part of it; however, I am concerned about my eligibility. Although I am of American Indian decent, I would be unable to provide any records or documentation of this history. Would I still qualify for instant admission? Thanks in advance, Ben
These issues can still improve through cooperation and understanding, however, and reaching a satisfactory decision about the Dakota Access Pipeline provides a perfect gateway to uplifting improvement of the reservations’ lifestyle. If the government agrees to give a little, a great opportunity arises for them to get a little as well. In the last decades, lack of funding has led to blatantly subpar education for the majority of Native American students, even when the government made an attempt to intervene due to an understandable inherent distrust of Government interference. Through a monumental compromise via the Dakota Access Pipeline, the government could prove its decency, transparency, and trustworthiness, which would advance the relationship of Native Americans and the United States Government brilliantly. The newfound trust could easily apply to areas such as financial welfare, educational support, and government-run health clinics.
