(153-219) Discussion #5
There are two major sections in this reading that bring out the boarding school experience that is common to many reservations. The first Take it All: 1967-1970, uses the boarding school as a backdrop for learning more about the relationship between Landreaux and Romeo that is essential to the plot. It is a more modern description of the boarding school. What do you learn about the two characters that helps you understand Romeos obsession with Landreaux and his desire for revenge?
In the second major section, called Wolfred & LaRose (185-202), Erdrich has woven the historical flashbacks about the character Wolfred Roberts and the character she describes as the first LaRose (Erdrich 26). In this section an important fact surfaces which connects some of the earlier segments. How does this longer section help you to understand some of the earlier pieces? Why is this section used to discuss the boarding school system that was part of the plan to take the savage out of the Indian. How does the information about the early days of the boarding schools combine with the previous section to help you understand the system? Note the description of the disease Tuberculosis (TB) in this section. What are your impressions?
Before reading, predict what the title of the main section beginning on p. 203 means: 1,000 Kills. Keep this in mind as you read. Well come back to it later. This is the longest section of the book.
The section called The Letters (205) seems to fit right in with the previous chapter on Wolfred & LaRose. Why did Erdrich choose to move it to the beginning of the next section? Why is this whole idea so important to the story?
Discuss LaRoses need to sleep on the spot of ground where the boy he replaced had died (Erdrich 207). Can you interpret the dreams/visions he has while in the woods? What is special or unusual or notable about the setting of woods?
