Code Talkers -- The Boarding Schools

In the beginning of the novel we are introduced to our main character, Ned (Little Boy) Begay.  Ned begins his story by describing the day his family sent him away to an Indian Boarding School.  Ned had no idea what to expect at this strange new place.  

Today, we are going to spend a little time learning the reason behind these Boarding Schools and what the conditions in these schools were like.

Watch the video below and then reflect on how Ned was treated at his boarding school.  

Create a comment to this post that answers the question:   

How did Ned's experience in the boarding school influence how he viewed himself?

  1. I think that he feels like he has to change himself to become one of them and it is very hard for him to change that!!

  2. That he is a bad person just for being Indian but he's not. Schamps

  3. That he isn't important to his people any more

  4. That he is a bad person because he is native---Matt D

  5. I believe that being an Indian is looked down upon and what he is as a person is wrong and that he must change to be excepted hayden

  6. It prolly made him feel like being native means nothing and learning the way of the whites was the only thing.
    Tuck tuck

  7. He did everything he was told and was a good student. He worked hard to be a good "white man"...but he didn't forget his native language or culture, them trying to change him made him want to keep his culture more than ever.


  8. That every thing he dose is wrong!!!

  9. Hey did everything he was told and he acted the way they wanted him to. He always did everything their way.

  10. Not going to be the same native person, now a white person. Noqt even with this culture anymore... Good enough? Kevin x
