Joshua Huver 11-27-07 Wayne Johns Texts and Contexts ENG 1100 Indian Education Everyone has a past, and in today’s world for most of us that past involves a regular schooling structure for the most of our childhood. Key events characterize entire years and make up the milestones of our lives. In ‘Indian Education,’ Native American author Sherman Alexie Goes through the major events of his life as a Native American schoolboy and his journey through his schooling years both on the reservation and in public school. In the first couple years of his life, Alexie was picked on and tormented by other boys on his reservation. He wore dark rimmed government issued glasses and his given “Indian name was Junior Falls Down.” So his classmates made him fall. Throughout his life people were bearing down on him. He was the subject of racism and oppression, such as when his teacher Betty Towle called him Indian “without capitalization.” He experienced censorship, and was often the underdog.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
