    Introduction For decades, Aboriginal individuals have and continue to face a number of challenges due to their race and spiritual beliefs (Monchalin, 2010). In the movie Smoke Signals directed by Chris Eyre, the characters portray the modernized stereotypes Native Americans experience daily. Eyre takes an interesting take on the movie providing vivid flashbacks of the main characters’ past, allowing the audience to get a sense of what life was like for them growing up (Eyre, Alexie, Bressler, Estes, Rosenfelt, & Skinner, 1998) The two main characters, Victor and Thomas flee from their hometown on an adventure to retrieve the remaining ashes of Victor’s father, Arnold, as Thomas assists with the cost of the trip, one condition; he could join him on the journey. The two young men board the bus and begin their journey, however experience reciprocated stereotypes among the non-Aboriginals right from the beginning of their expedition. Although the two young men did not regularly see eye to eye, the experience alone taught them a lot about themselves, each other and the world they lived in. Overall, the movie adequately exemplifies the hardships that Aboriginals experience due to their race regarding alienating stereotypes, spiritual beliefs and customs, and diverse ways of living. Stereotypes Although the movie Smoke Signals is quite comical, easy to follow and relate to, there are notable stereotypes and negative stigmas significantly portrayed throughout. A few aspects that were…

    Walden My favorite trip would have to be when I went to Turks and Caicos. I love to go to the beach, but this was way more special to me. It was so much fun! I would go back any day. The view and food was amazing. The whole was wonderful. I started to pack my bag and imagine what the beautiful island looked like.

    the pulchritudinous forest and flavorful food. I had never spent my vacation on such a remote, peaceful, and beautiful island. The live band that played every night on the beach was phenomenal.

The feel of the breeze through my room window at night, made everything feel so magical. There was always something fun to. The banana boat rides, the hang gliding rides, the…

    I could hear the waves crashing into one another. It also seemed like the game, Dominos. My family and I were crab hunting. We had seen some ghost crabs and sand fleas, which were very pale and white. Still to this day I can smell the ocean, salty and breezy. The smell of the ocean is really different than in Illinois. In Illinois, we have more of a farmland and dusty smell, not as fresh as the beach air. The first event my family and I decided to do was snorkeling at Destin Harbor. It was…

    Fear is my biggest weakness. Fear of being out there, alone. It was one of those hot summer mornings; a gust of warm wind brushed against my skin. I was standing before an old rusty gate of my new high school waiting for someone. Ever since we moved to California, Lily, was the only friend I had. She had dark hazel eyes that bubbled with hazing richness and expensive taste. Her silky hair was a soft brown, like the bark of an oak tree, not dark but simply gentle in any light. I met her at a…

    vendors, Ms. Bud and Ms. Weiser, operate on a beach. They are required to charge the same price, but they can choose where to locate themselves on the beach. Their customers, sunbathers, do not like to be near each other, so they are spread evenly along the beach. Sunbathers are also averse to walking, so they purchase one can of beer from the vendor closest to them.

His first writings were first seen in…
