Leslie Marmon Silko's Ceremony is a multidimensional novel full of Laguna symbols and themes that are easily overlooked in a casual reading. Like many of the elements in this work, Josiah's spotted cattle can be interpreted in multiple ways: as cultural metaphors, spiritual representation, and racial mixing. Silko's depiction of the spotted cattle creates a strong metaphor that links them closely to the Lagunas, illustrating the animosity the Laguna tribe has with the white Americans. While at the same time drawing a close connection between Tayo and the spotted cattle.
We decided met with the other charachter groups and mad deals with both Charles and Perpetune. We would give Charles 3 cows in exchange for ⅓ of his land to own. To Perpetune, we would give one cow to let our cattle graze on her land for this current season and two more to graze on her land from then forward. Of all of the Fredericks in the different villages, I would say mine was toward the lower end on the spectrum of success. Although my Frederick did get exactly what my character group came up with, apparently some of the other Fredericks were more creative in their deal making.
The entire last four passages are examples the author uses to argue the reader's ideas, “dogs give barks indicating surprise, pleasure and all other emotions. Cows will bellow for days when mourning their dead.” These are examples not only prove the author's points that animals and humans share similar experiences but it also mentions “superhuman animal” traits. Dixon uses these examples to appeal to the logic of audience and make them respect the unique traits of animals.
First, they bring certain gifts from their travels and approach a wooden figure, which we can assume is their God or at least one of them, in order to beg for its favor in trading the merchandise. He then goes on to say how they might return a “second, or even third time” if trading does not go well. After the last time they begin to beseech the other wooden figures behind the first, who are its wives and daughters (388). This process is actually beneficial for the entire village. Not only does the seller receive good fortune from his trades, but distributes his good fortune by slaughtering sheep and cattle and giving some meat to the poor and the rest to the figure (388).
At the age of eleven years old, Ralph traveled up to a ranch for the summer to earn himself a living. While staying at the ranch, Ralph required the aid of a skilled cow horse to better complete his tasks. Despite the offer of Mr. Cooper, the ranch owner, for one of two docile ponies, Ralph knew he must have one horse in particular. However, no single man had ever handled the horse Ralph so intensely desired to call his own. Disregarding this fact, he decided to take upon himself the task of training the horse he named Sky-High.
Lame Deer transforms as a result to the vision and according to Eliade approaches the gods. Eliade explains the reactualization of myths “religious man attempts to approach the gods and to participate in being” (Eliade 106). Lame Deer feels the “nagi” when the vision of his great-grandfather occurs; a connection is formed between the past and present (Deer 6). Both Eliade and Lame Deer discuss the loss of depth in religious experiences.
The negative space is a representation of something missing in her life.

Their lives were spent dwelling in caves and tending to their herds of sheep. Odysseus wanted to bargain with these creatures, since in his previous stops he’s had multiple supporters who assisted him along the journey. But Odysseus clearly did not expect voluntary assistance from such a rowdy beast, so he decides to bring his finest wine. He states, “I had a goatskin full of that sweet liquor that Euanthes’ son, Maron, had given me… he gave me seven shining golden talents, a solid silver winebowl, and then this liquor-twelve two-handled jars of brandy, pure and fiery” (Homer 137-138, 142-145). This wine was so powerful that one cupful had to have been diluted throughout twenty cupfuls of water (Homer 148-149).
He became a member of the Agrupacio Courbet after he had his first one-man show in Barcelona. His second one-man show was in 1921 in Paris and his painting is about reflecting cubist influences. He chooses “the olive grove” artwork because the geometric pattern of the artwork really shows the influenced by the cubism. figure 2: The Olive Grove
So how was I supposed to make people want to listen to me, I knew I had to make them feel what I felt when I was doing all my research. Thankfully I had such wonderful teachers to help me along the way offering me many techniques and strategies to pull my audience in. I wants was such an unconfident writer and speaker but at this moment in time I wanted to make a difference about something I was truly so passionate about. I wanted my words to resonate with those in my audience. Imagery in my writing along with my speech was key, I spoke about how the dairy cows were treated and also went into very vivid detail about the process that actually goes on behind closed doors of the dairy industry.
After the war in 1937, West went to Spain to help with the relief effort by handing out cups of milk to those who were devastated by war (West). When he was done, he went back to his home state, Indiana, and asked for heifers to send oversees to help those who did not have much to eat (West). Men volunteered their heifers to be sent overseas. The heifers were taken over to Europe by men called seagoing cowboys.
First, it uses Pathos, which is an emotional appeal to the audience, when it states that drinking milk will give you results. These results are portrayed as helping you transform into leaner, thus attractive, build more muscle, thus stronger, and be more decisive, thus more successful. Second, it uses Logos, which is the reasoning part of the argument, when it states that if you eat right, exercise, and drink three glasses of milk a day instead of sugary drinks, then you will be lean and build muscle. The ad makes this reasoning more persuasive, by stating that studies have shown this to tend to be true for teens that do it. The phrase “tend to” helps to make this statement more logical by eliminating the absolute and permitting their statement to not be true in some instances.
This world is full of many uncertainties. Some are pleasant surprises, while others become life-altering tragedies. Kevin Hazzard portrays such beautiful disasters in his book “A Thousand Naked Strangers,” which recalls his unimaginably insane encounters as an EMT and paramedic in Atlanta, Georgia. He witnessed pain and suffering, but also beauty and freedom. He claims that the chaos and unpredictability is what made his job worth doing.
In the United States, during the eighteen-hundreds’, a small group of people believed that slavery was immoral and did many things to abolish it. John Brown, a Caucasian male who was part of this group of people, did two things that many people in United States history didn’t have the passion to do. John Brown’s life was very interesting: His early life and transition to adulthood, his decision to fight for the cause, his actions of violence in Kansas and Harper’s Ferry, along with, the long-lasting effects of these actions led to his hanging. These events were pivotal to the beginning of the Civil War. “John Brown was born in Torrington, Connecticut, on May 9, 1800, five months after the death of George Washington”(Marrin,7).
