Storyboard Text

  • In the Absolutely True Diary of a Part- Time Indian an important lesson is that hopes and dreams can be a motivation for individuals to be self-sufficient and independent for the future.
  • You're going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.
  • You have to dream big to be big.
  • I realized that i might be a lonely Indian boy, but I was not alone in my loneliness. There were millions of other Americans who left their birthplaces in search of a dream.
  • Alexie wanted to clarify that stepping out of the reservation would improve his life because the Indians were so negative and overwhelmed about alcohol and stress, that they never had the strength to fix. The problem was the people who were living around the Indians, never gave them a chance to reveal their talent because of their appearance. Lastly, the more hope people have of each other, the more people will master their ambitions.
  • Alexie clearly wants the readers to realize that it's not only about dreaming big but it's about having self-confidence and using that to pursue goals. By having the ability to 'dream big' people can immediately fulfill life with encouragement from others and most importantly, themselves to 'be big'. The people that get into a routine of dreaming big will accomplish those goals because people have the right mindset and will seek purpose in their life.
  • Sherman Alexie wanted to describe that traveling or moving away was not a horrible choice, it was like an adventure because it inspired divergent people to accomplish different dreams. This gave an advantage for people to become open-minded and perceive other opinions around the world. The fact that men and women take the chance to acknowledge what's going around them is ideally incredible.
