I draw all the time. I draw cartoons of my mother and father; my sister and grandmother; my best friend, Rowdy; and everybody else on the rez. I draw because words are too unpredictable. I draw because words are too limited. (Sherman Alexie 5)
'I want to go to Reardan,' Reardan is the rich, white farm town that sits in the wheat fields exactly 22 miles away from the rez. And It's a hick town, I suppose, filled with farmers and rednecks and racist cops who stops every Indian driver that drives through.(Sherman Alexie 46)
The rez basketball fans where chanting,"Ar-nold sucks! Ar-nold sucks! Ar-nold sucks!" They weren't calling me by my Rez name, Junior. Nope, they where calling me by my Readan name. (Sherman Alexie 143)
The thing is, plenty of Indians have dies because they where drunk, And plenty of drunken Indians have killed other drunken Indians. But my grandmother had never drunk alcohol in her life. Not one drop. (Sherman Alexie 158)
"May I speak to Arnold in private please."said Miss Warren ..."Whats going on Miss Warren" I asked... She started crying. ... "I got a phone call from your mother.

And a curtain drifted in the wind and cought the hotplate"... "They police say you sister never woke up, she was too drunk"
I hoped and prayed that they would some day forgive me for leaving them. I hoped that someday I would forgive myself for leaving them."Ah, man,"Rowdy said."Stop crying." Will we still know each other when we are old men" I asked. "Who knows anything?"Rowdy asked. Then he through me the ball.(Sherman Alice 230)
