house made of dawn

our second writing assignment is due in class (printed, hard copy): a 1-page analysis of the passage from House Made of Dawn beginning on page 50 (chapter titled July 28) to the top of page 53: from “The canyon is a ladder to the plain….” to “They have assumed the names and gestures of their enemies, but have held on to their own, secret souls; and in this there is a resistance and an overcoming, a long outwaiting.” Please write in detail about these few pages ONLY. What themes emerge? What is the narrator telling us about? What is the worldview that emerges from this story about the land?
