The Sophomore Experience Another Culture

By Sabre Menninga, Sophomore 

    This semester, the Sophomore English class read a modern novel about an American Indian. This book is about a boy from an Indian reservation determined to take his future into his own hands. Junior leaves his school on the rez to attend an all-white school where the only other Indian is the school mascot. In this book, Junior’s grandmother supported his decision to attend the white school and is very close to Junior. One of his memories with his grandmother was that she would make him Fry Bread in their time together. Fry Bread is a flat dough fried in oil. The Sophomore class experienced some of the Indian culture by making fry bread. In the story, whenever Junior ate fry bread, it triggered memories he had with his grandmother. Cathryn Hollands commented, “The smell reminded me of eating funnel cakes at the Richardson County Fair.”
