Ch.1 Native Americans
When the writer was 10years old he(or she) was forced to move from american indian reserve to an American city. Then she faced a drastic chnage culture including the language difference. Language, according to the writer, is not just words but totally different concepts and ways of looking at the world. For example she grew up watching a beautiful bird which the blackfeets called meksikatsi. But in English it was called duck, which didn't sound appropriate for her. Also ecological park which Americans called wilderness didn't seen like a wilderness at all. For her, New York city was more like wilderness since it was full of confusion and noises. As the last example she mentions the words like dirt and soil which represent something unclean in English language. She couldn't understand how dirts can be related to dirty.
