Thomas runs away from the Mission School and returns to his mountain home. When he arrives he expects to find his brother the bear and the rest of his animal family, but instead he finds a “charred circle” (70) where his lodge used to be. Tom then “…stood among the ashes and whispered the sorrow chant…For small griefs you shout, but for the big griefs you whisper or say nothing. The big griefs must be borne alone, inside” (70.) He knows that it was Blue Elk who did it because there is not one item of worth left behind, not even the knife Tom’s mother gave him.

We Are I… In Ayn Rand’s “I Owe Nothing To My Brothers”, Equality 7-252 has discovered individualism, being independent, a new meaning for the word “I”.

If he had never learned English or if he had refused to learn it he could have ignored everyone and what they were trying to teach him.
Vocational Education gives no chance for the person to prosper academically in any way, simply it teaches the children and some adults information that only pertains to a specific menial job. The Urban Indian Experience in America by Donald Lee Fixico portrays all of the challenges that are presented to Native Americans living in modern America. In this book, Fixico utilizes the account of a past native student, “David Richmond argues that the schools on the reservation paid little attention to the students grades because they were prejudice (Fixico,156).” Fixico’s book portray how the Indian Education Act of 1972 isn't protecting the Native Americans education, but rather just blanketing the problem. This account of Richmond shows a school system that is truly corrupt. He helps clear up that there are no possible paths that students may take to succeed and this leads ultimately to failure.
He does not immediately kill the water buffalo, but instead shoots it in places he knows the animal will feel immense pain and sorrow. He would not stop shooting the buffalo all over its body; its legs, torso, face, everywhere. “The whole platoon stood there watching, feeling all kinds of things, but there wasn’t a great deal of pity for the baby water buffalo. Curt Lemon was dead. Rat Kiley had lost his best friend in the world...Nothing moved except [the buffalo’s] eyes, which were enormous, the pupils shiny
