  •                Redskin!         Geek!                              Bookworm!                          Brownie!                    
  • For all of the Indians out there!
  • Hahhahaha! Redskin!
  • Junior is and Indian boy with multiple mental disabilities such as epilepsy and hydrocephalus, otherwise known as "water on the brain". Junior lives on an Indian reservation in Washington, alongside hundreds of other Indians. Junior is bursting at the seams with ideas, and hopes to one day, leave the reservation and accomplish hopes of his own. "I draw because I feel like it might be my only real chance to escape the reservation" Pg.6
  • Geez! Not a bad shot kid!
  • Fortunately, Junior is given the opportunity to move to a new high school by the name of Reardan in Washington. Junior is not necessarily welcomed with open arms , however, Junior never gives up hope. He keeps striding along with his days, receiving discriminative comments from most people he walks past. However one day, he is approached by Roger, the school jock...
  • Roger begins to burst out with racist names and jokes. Junior had been building up a lot of hate for the school children in Reardan, and for once, he could not hold in his frustration any longer. Without hesitation, Junior sucker-punches Roger right in the face, as he felt he needed to stand up for himself and all other Indians. All of a sudden, Roger gains respect for Rowdy as he had just shown himself as a fearless, courageous teenager, in a school where he is picked on repeatedly.
  • As Junior becomes friends with Roger after his respect was gained, Roger persuades Junior to try out for the basketball team. Junior ends up completing the fitness test and presents his basketball skill to the coach. After the coach is pleasantly surprised with Junior's skill, Junior makes the team in no time, making it into the starting lineup. "I remember you kid, you were a good shooter" Pg.140
  • Suddenly, Junior's grandma passes away leaving the entire Indian reservation in shock and grief. Junior's grandma taught him patience, the skill of drawing, and most importantly, hope. The death of Junior's grandma definitely affected Junior's vision on life after she passed away.  Her ceremony is held on the Wellpinit football pitch. "We held grandmothers wake three days later. We were stunned because almost two thousand Indians showed up that day to say good-bye." Pg.159
  • In Junior's final game of the season against his old school, Wellpinit, the atmosphere in the gym is extremely tempered as Willpinit felt that Junior had betrayed them. In that game, Junior plays an absolute blinder, scoring over 40 points, and his team went off to win the game and the season. Once the celebrations are finished, Junior looked over at the opposition and saw terrible sadness in their faces. That night, he met up with his old team and played basketball that entire night.
