The big message is for the readers to live and learn from experiences. The authors want their audiences to use these tales and examples as life lessons and hope for them to utilize these sources in their future lives. These two ideas are presented through the use of figurative language, mainly metaphors. In addition, the similar tone of these pieces allows the author to connect more deeply with the readers.

It comes into being… Words are how an individual will take shape” (Bilodeau 71). To the Inuit population, their language is essential to their culture.

Basso entails us about a strong culture that hits home about the strong human connection associated with names and place. Four different groups of Apache are introduced in Wisdom sits in places, and each one has a unique take on their culture associated with place. The Apaches own history is intertwined with that of the land, and by allowing us to read about the four different Apache groups. Basso expands the conciseness of his readers by showing the wisdom, manners, and morals of the rich culture of the Apache.

Native-American Literature Scholars, Larry Evers and Paul Pavlich believe that such stories "remind the people of who and what they are, why they are in this particular place, and how then should continue to live here." The story of the World on Turtle 's Back effectuates these qualities through the significant cultural traditions of the Iroquois tribe, as well as the ways that the culture views the world.
