The significance of the Native American characters reclaiming these symbols is to show that they also do/watch many of the things that an American would do.
David Beauzil Dr. Granville Ganter ENG-3370 Response Paper One aspect that stood out from me in The Sacred Hoop by: Paula Gunn Allen was how the American Indian culture is portrayed. While reading the book, one theme that caught my attention was how much the views of the Indians differed from the views of the Americans (Western Ideas). “In American Indian thought, God is known as the All Spirit, and other beings are also spirit-more spirit than body, more spirit than intellect, more spirit than mind.” The Indian culture puts more emphases on what lies inside a person and what an object posses. For example, a person can be not so good looking but be the smartest person in the world. In today’s American culture, it seems that what’s
