Indian education

14 Aug

In Indian education Sherman Alexie tells of his character’s years of schooling, with him sharing small tidbits of Victor’s life. He includes some bad things that happened to him but also  gives important details. Details that show how he develops as a character throughout his whole school experience from kindergarten through twelfth grade. More specifically, he shows how being a Native American affects how others see him.

How do things that people do or say affect the person he later becomes? One example is when Randy, his “soon to be first and best friend, taught me the most valuable lesson about living in the white world: always through the first punch.” (176)

How does being a Native American affect how others see him? Like when on page 178 the Chicano teacher assumed he had been drinking.
