Plenty Coup And History Of The Crow Tribe

Good Essays
Generally speaking I loved the idea that Plenty Coup had in making sure the story and history of the crow tribe was told. Lear's formulating thoughts and ideas about Coupe and the crow tribe history help organize the story in a way that much of the content seemed more mythical than real. The main point I got from the first chapter was the discovering of what life meant for someone after facing great defeat or mishaps in life. Initially the idea that life seemed unbearable and dull, not worth living. Though it may seem that my ideas maybe somewhat extreme, I'm pretty sure thats how Coup felt when he realized that the crows tribe tradition in hunting buffalo, fighting the Sioux Warriors, and planting a coup-stick came to a halt around the time

    My tribe is interesting in that they treated war differently than European countries did. The Crow Tribe along with other Plains Tribes (category of tribes that mine is in) didn't fight necessarily over territory but more for reputation and courage. The Plains Indians also rarely fought to the death or destroyed each other's villages. Instead, their war customs were mostly just injuring their opponent in battle but without harming him, stealing an enemy's weapon or horse, or forcing the other tribe's…

    English 1A July 10, 2013 Island Of Plenty In the Island of Plenty Montgomery argues that America should not share its resources with other countries of the world until we have enough food to feed all the Americans. Although this sounds harsh and has some truth to it, I don’t feel that we should deny anyone of anything. If someone is hungry it’s completely selfish and heartless to not give them some food. If we’re not doing anything nice for anyone how could we ever expect anyone to do anything…
