Today, we discussed Johnson’s reading and how her cultural influence shows up in her writing of this story and in many of her other ones as well. She writes a short story that is surprisingly full of issues that are struggled with by modern natives even today about love, death, religion, culture, identity, and home. Her ideas have been marvelously posed to readers speaking from the time of her writing of the turn of the 19th century which resonate today. The discussion was lively and interesting and garnered the curiosity of many Native Literature students.
