Assimilation forces people to learn new cultures, which usually ends with a choose being made between which of the cultures to follow. Many Native Americans went through assimilation and were not accepted by the white man and even their own people.

Moreover, when Arnold asks him who has hope and where he can find hope, Mr. P explains, “You 're going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.” (43). Mr. P uses the term "taught" in his talk with Arnold to show that this mindset of hopelessness comes from his education, his school, established in his community by the white population.
