This storyboard does not have a description.
“You men want to sign up?“(Leslie Marmon Silko, 1977, p. 65)
Tayo approaches the innermost cave by signing up for the war and trying to explain the things around him.
“This was the time. But his fingers were numb, and he fumbled with the screwdriver as he tried to rub warmth back into his hands. There would be no one to help Emo.” (Silko, 1977, p. 253)
Tayo nearly kills Emo with a screw driver.
“He would go back there now, where she had shown him the plant. He would gather the seeds for her and plant them with great care in places near sandy hills. The rainwater would seep down gently and the delicate membranes would not be crushed or broken… The plants would grow there like the story, strong and translucent as the stars.” (Silko, 1977, pg. 232)
Tayo starts to see the results the little actions he makes.
“...he had learned the lie by heart--the lie which they had wanted him to learn: only brown-skinned people were thieves; white people didn’t steal, because they always had the money to buy whatever they wanted.” (Silko, 1977, p. 191)
From his journey he realized that the white society was not fair. The “liars” told people that it wasn’t fair and people aren’t equal.
“He stood there with the sun on his face, and he thought maybe he might make it after all.” (Silko, 1977, Pg. 221)
This quote shows how Tayo was basically “resurrected” from his despair.
“It seems like I already heard these stories before… only thing is, the names sound different.” (Silko, 1977, 260)
Tayo has returned home with his accomplished Ceremony, and the people around him are describing how they feel now about it.
