Storyboard Text

  • This provides evidence to the theme statement because Jr. stood up and created his own identity by showing Roger he wasn't scared of him, and he would defend him and his tribe. (Pg. 64)
  • "'Hey, Chief,' Roger said. 'You want to hear a joke?' 'Sure.' I said."
  • "And then Roger told me a joke involving Indians, African Americans, and buffalo that was the most racist, disgusting, evil thing I'd ever heard."
  • This supports the theme statement because Arnold realizes that on the rez, no one could create their own identity because they were afraid, but sense he left he could become his own person.
  • "'I know, I know, but some Indians think you have to act white to make your life better. Some Indians think you become white if you try to make your life better, if you become successful.'"
  • "'If that were true, then wouldn't all white people be successful?'"
  • This helps the theme statement because the way the white people can discriminate Indians makes Arnold have the determination to break away from the rez and have his own identity so he can be successful.
  • ¨Oh, God, he was a collector. Those guys made Indians feel like insects pinned to a display board. I looked around the football field. Yep, all of my cousins were squirming like beetles and butterflies with pins stuck in their hearts.¨
