The Indians View The Indian writing titled I Went to Kill the Deer by the Taos Pueblo Indians introduced a very unique kind of perspective about the universe For one the writing offers the suggestion of personification In other words the writer gave things that arent alive human characteristics and traits An example of this would be when he says The heart of the mountain beatsTaos Pueblo When he refers to the mountain as having a heart it makes one think that the tribe views the mountain as being alive as a kind of symbol of their respect for nature Secondly the writing infers that animals communicate with one another In the writing the eagle tells the deer theres danger A hunter writes An eagle saw me coming and Flew down to the home of the deer And told him that a hunter came to killTaos Pueblo This shows their understanding that creatures of the same kind need to stick together to protect each other Otherwise there would be no need for an animal which preys on the dead to warn another of being killed Thirdly the writing implies that there is always going to be different unknown territory of some kind for every species The deer runs to a place in which it is safe from the man As the hunter says The deer went with the eagle Into the heart of the mountain Safe from me who did not hear The heart of the mountain beatingTaos Pueblo He can not feel the heart beat because it is not his territory or his right to be there So in a way the Taos Pueblo Indians dont think of themselves any different or better than anything else because they have a respect for life and the universe
