The reflection focuses on “fools crow visionary experience and accounts of his daily life. The excerpt outlined in the reflection begins on page 336 to 338 of chapter 31. Fools Crow is a story of dreams, respect, misfortune, and progressions. It is a transitioning story that happens in the middle of hardships past anything the Pikunis had confronted in the past as a piece of the Blackfeet tribe. The hardship occurs as a result of the infringement of the Napikwans, a white man (Welch 336). Fools crow embraces the essential structure for portraying the improvement of a single person from the young purity to a humanized development. In the circumstances, the young man’s encounter with his adolescence dreams introduces the creator’s capacity in the forming of the story.

White Mans Dog is a troubled 18-year-old who is regularly teased by other youths for never having had a young lady. He is a head shorter than Fast Horse, who is a year more youthful than him and is tormented with wrong sentiments to his father’s third wife who is one year older more youthful. He feels bound because without riches, in his view, no young lady takes a gander at him. The review into Fools Crows youth introduces the time where his instability starts. The creator draws his adolescence encounters as a portrayal device and a complex unit.
The flashback serves in the making of the air of the story where the tasteful feelings of the onlooker are excited. Also, the center of the sections is essentially on the Pikunis social application to which Fools Crow is accommodated and is universalized in the realm of the novel. The infringing social arrangement of the whites is different, unintelligible and immoral. The social request is under the greatest anxiety outlined as a period where the reader’s fate was taken into consideration by the debacle of military thrashing, pandemic, starvation. The description of adolescence memories introduces a situation where there is an examination of present and past.

Fools Crow is a story of dreams, respect, misfortune, and progressions. It is a transitioning story that happens in the middle of hardships past anything the Pikunis have confronted previously. Dreams portend and anticipate the challenges to come. The strong decision to utilize dreams comes to a striking test from its ordinary authenticity. The third-individual omniscient perspective permits the onlooker to watch circumstances through the faculties and internal considerations of each character without inclination. In addition, the central character shifts from scene to scene, offering viewpoints of distinctive central characters and permitting book lovers to make determinations without being advised what to think.

In conclusion, the selection of pages 336 to 338 displays the significance of qualities in the tribal life of Welch. It also demonstrates how the gathering of people through standards and tribal life rather than families, tribes, and values was confined in society in ancient times. As the focal character, Welch expresses a period in his life where he doubts himself and personality in a thoughtful stupor. He needs to figure out his spot in the world and his genuine nature. That is why he analyzes his commitments to his kin and the probabilities of breaking free and carrying on with life without being examined by anyone. He ponders about the white man’s societal life and hopes to accomplish a percentage of the things done by the white man.
