The situation, in his eyes, is that he was asked to “solicit a great man, to whom [he] never spoke, for a young person whom [he] had never seen, upon a supposition which [he] had no means of knowing true.” He does this to show that he is willing to share his perspective and that he respects her enough to walk her through it, instead of blatantly saying no without any reason.

His parents had a conflict with the world, they had aspirations, but since they were living on the reservation they weren’t given chances. This conflict reveals that Junior is understanding because he knows people on the reservation aren’t given any real chances to accomplish anything the only way for him to get a chance was by leaving.
