When he was just an infant, his father was out searching for food to keep his family nurtured, and he never returned to his home. Tyson’s mother seems to think that he was run over by buffalo, but no one knows for sure. It is bad enough that Tyson is an only child, but he has practically lived his life without a father figure.

So when he received the draft to require him to join the army and fight in Vietnam War, he was lost, he couldn’t figure out what he should do. In that summer, he worked in a meatpacking store. Even thought it was not a war field, but it was similar to it—bloody with dead bodies everywhere everyday. He felt exhausted and sick living in this kind of environment and he thought he was too good to be a soldier, he said “certain blood was shredded for uncertain reason.” He wanted to take some time off.

Walt Whitman had very unique characteristics. He was a very isolated person. Even during his childhood he stayed apart from his family and spent most of his time at a newspaper editorial, or at an office where he got his first job. Walt was not thrilled about his family’s ties to the country and farmland, which he notably scorned in his letters to Abraham Leech (Folsom and Price 2).

“One day you have a home and the next you don’t” (Alexie 8), explains how he lives his life on the streets, wandering aimlessly through each day going about the same endless routine because he has no home to go to.

He seems to have lost his way and convinced himself that the only thing he is good at is being homeless. “I know it sounds strange to be proud of this, but it means a lot to me….Maybe you don’t understand the value of a clean bathroom, but I do” (Alexie 9), shows how Jackson accepts what he has become and cherishes what little life has to offer him to survive each new day, as his ancestors had practiced long ago, living off the land and being grateful for what mother nature had provided for them. In this sense, maybe Jackson needed to become homeless to get in touch with his culture and their ways, giving him back one piece of who he really is in this modern
