Charles Eastman is a Dakota, who was a student that became a doctor and lived as an American. His approach with this book i think was the importance for the Indian people to adapt to light culture although still upholding both cultural and traditional ways of life. Ohiyesa is the reason of relevance in this go through. His studies and triumphant experiences opened the way for what the Indian is surely an equal and superior in a society that viewed American indian people as inferior. Ohiyesa shows that societal norms may and are meant to be broken. His countless understanding in the field of education, medicine and politics great proof of this kind of idea. Ohiyesa writes the world is full of natural competition, this believed holds true while using return of his dad Many Lightnings. Prior to the come back of his father, Ohiyesa was raised as a man nevertheless trained to be a warrior and hunter. In order for him to embrace these items Ohiyesa was taught to adapt him self to normal things, to get enduring, to acquire faith and patience but most importantly under no circumstances spare the white gentleman because of the treachery towards his Indian People. Many Lightnings contrary to what Ohiyesa was already taught encouraged the thought of acknowledging the white-colored culture. This individual reminds his son that he has already accepted a number of the white traditions already with the use of guns intended for hunting, cutlery and hatchets. But what genuinely began stir young Ohiyesa thoughts was his dad's faith. Faith deemed to become a deciding element to the lifestyle he was likely to live which means way clears neither for the Indian or perhaps white existence rather really his own with impact on from equally ways of existence.
