Storyboard Text

  • Junior was suspended from school for throwing a book onto his teacher, Mr P and breaking his nose unintentionally.
  • I'm sorry they suspended you.
  • After a week of being suspended, Junior decided to contemplate about things by sitting in his front porch. Just then, Mr P walked up to him with a bandage on his nose.
  • I'm sorry about your face, Mr P
  • Is he going to smash me with a book?
  • Junior expected Mr P to be furious at him for breaking his nose. Instead Mr P sat down beside him and asked about why he hit him with the book. Junior explained that it was an accident and he was not intending for the book to hit anybody. Mr P told Junior that he forgave him although what he did was an unforgivable act.
  • I forgive you. You are a good boy. This is the worst thing you have done so far.
  • Mr P confessed that he has hurt so many Indian children while he was a younger teacher and he is regretful of it.
  • We were supposed to kill the Indian to save the child. Not by literally killing Indians but by killing the Indian culture.
  • Mr P then explains to Junior about how he is full of hope and that he deserves better than to be beaten up all the time by people who have already lost hope.
  • You should leave this reservation and go somewhere else that is filled with hope. Do not give up like your friend Rowdy. If you stay here, soon everyone is going to kill you and you would give up too.
  • The Indians would be mad at you though.
  • Can I go to Reardan tomorrow?
  • Sure, we just want the best for you although it's going to be hard.
  • The next day, Junior told Rowdy about transferring to Reardan. Rowdy got furious as Reardan was the school which had beat them in every competition they participated in. He accused Junior of thinking that he is better than him and beat him up.
  • He knew that from then on, his best friend had become his worst enemy.
