The absolutely true diary of a part time Indian theme storyboard assessment.
I wish I were magical, but I am really just a poor - ass reservation kid living with his poor - ass family on the poor - ass Spokan Indian Reservaton
It sucks to be poor, and it sucks to feel that you somehow deserve to be poor. You start believing that you're poor because you're stupid and ugly
Great, I have to walk
Don't have enough gas
Arnold's location, the Spokane Indian Reservation, is poor as a whole. Alexie wants us to realize that money is a necessity, and breaking the cycle of being a stereotypical poor Indian is the only possible thing to do in order to achieve one's goals.
Alexie wants us to realize that knowing one's self is poor is only the first step to achieving your goals, rather one has to realize how to get out of it and know that it isn't their fault, rather that they must figure out how to get out of the situation.
In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian an important message is that living in poverty doesn't mean that someone can't have goals, just that they have to work harder to achieve them.
Alexie wants us to realize that although most people would have simple stayed home if they didn't have a ride to school. But Arnold knows that his education is very important and that even though his family can't afford a few gallons of gas he still needs to go to school to excel in life.
