The true question however, is how was Silko able to so prudently show her readers the underlying theme of continuity and change in “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” in order to portray the challenge Native Americans endured? “Send us rain clouds, Grandfather” Leon, one of the characters in this story was visibly essential for Silko to depict the theme (continuity and change).
