When signing up for this course I thought I would discuss and learn about many different cultures and compare them However I did not know that the main concentration of this course would be talking about my culture My mother is American Black and my father whom I very seldom speak to is African American and half Native American Being so distant in relationship with my father I have never had the chance to learn about my other side In the book On the Rez author Ian Frazier displays a style of writing that is very different to me I am personally more of a John Grisham or Sue Grafton fictionmystery type of reader but here I am forced to concentrate on the situation and not just the details He really tends to drag stories on just to get his point across but in doing so he creates a vision of the event like no other He attempts to touch our hearts with stories of the Oglala Sioux who live on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota This is done by first describing where Pine Ridge is located in the plains and badlands in the middle of the United States Frazier 2000 p1 Until now many people including myself have forgotten about the Native Americans because of their distance from the rest of society as we know it A person like me really gets screwed out of heritage lessons because in grade school and high school we are only taught one side of the stories about history Not giving us the chance to learn about certain things For example the government began forcing Indian children into schools and disciplining them for speaking their own languages I complained in school about learning black history for only one week in the middle of February but is was useless Twelve years of asking the right people didnt even helpMuch of this book orbits around Le War Lance
