Rez sisters Q1 Why do you think that Pelajia cant be chief And If she could have been chief would she have been a good one In this play there are a couple scenes in which we can observe the oppression of women This specific one comes at the end of the play when Pelajia is talking about how she would get rid of the dirt roads if she were chief but Philomena is fast to respond that there is no way she can be chief because Pelajia is a woman This shows that women are seen to be inferior to men in that tribe because a woman can not be a leader but a man can In my opinion not being eligible to be a chief means that the people or more precisely the men do not think that a women has what it takes to be in control that she is not strong enough or not smart enough and that she can not be trusted with the responsibilities that come with leadership If she could have been chief I would probably think that she would make a good one because it looks like she is talking as if she can make a difference Bullshit If that useless old chief of ours was a woman wed see a few things get done around here Wed see our woman working wed see our men working wed see our young men sober on Saturday nights and wed see Nanabush dancing up and down the hill on shiny black paved roads Highway 114 This passage shows how Pelijia is capable of being a good leader because of her motivation and willingness to make their community a better place to live She would probably do a better job as leader than that useless chief of theirs who happens to be a male oppressor
