Day 7: Identity, Culture, Love, and “Assimilation”

Short Story "Assimilation"

Today, we talked about Sherman Alexie’s short story called “Assimilation” and how the themes of identity, culture, love, and race play into “treaties” of our lives. Agreements are made all the time, both personal and legal, that affect the decisions and choices we make. Alexie does a good job of being honest and open about hard questions with relationships. The conversation was varied but the students did try to tackle the difficult subject matter.
