What Shirley passes on, the "rhythm and pattern of repeating and echoing, re-echoing and returning," makes up both the substance and the form of the stories that follow. As we weave in and out of lives and times, the "I" that emerges here and there reminds us of how these stories have been transmitted from one generation to the next, in the end creating one vast but finely detailed tapestry of the life and history of a community.
These stories reach back to the time of Ojibwe children being forcibly placed in first a Catholic missionary school, then an Indian school; and they travel through the 20th century to a recent bingo night on the reservation. Early on, Maggie remembers being punished by a nun, because "This is what happens to girls who talk like savages.
Next time you'll remember English. Just as Aunt Shirley gives Artense the lives of this community, a host of voices to be reclaimed and preserved, she passes on her dance boots. Sculpted to the shape of Shirley's slender feet, the boots soon soften and fit themselves to Artense's steps. She enters the powwow circle to dance her part, taking her place in the story that she, and this collection, eloquently tell. Home All Sections Search. Log In Welcome, User. Minneapolis St.
Impeachment now a threat like no other Trump has faced. Worker shortage sparks Minnesota businesses to think outside of the box. Around Duluth, small-town cops face tough foe in Mexican cartels. Minnesota builds expertise in coaxing the body to heal itself. The topics discussed in the conversations between the two regard the major factors that played into the tough lives of the Native American people in the early 20th century: the Indian Reorganization Act, discrimination of youth in reform school, cruelty of the white supremacists, and the lost hope of many Indians as a result of such oppression.
It takes years for Artense to adequately comprehend the strength of her people. The pivotal moment occurs as she juxtaposes the life of her grandmother and daughter. This recognition that her daughter is able to live a better life because of the sacrifices of her ancestors makes Artense proud to be Indian. The lives of her ancestors and their traditional values have provided current generations with more opportunities, and therefore can not be left unheard of. Artense has now become an educator with a personal duty to spread knowledge of the Native American people.
This transition is symbolized by Aunt Shirley gifting the dance boots to Artense, who will use the dancing boots to carry on the traditions of her people. Artense is an American Indian of the Ojibwe tribe who lived in Mesabi with her husband, Stan, and their two daughters. The tale gives no justice to the American Indian people who were forced from their homes.

The dance boots that Aunt Shirley cherished Artense treasured and was a reminder of the history of her people and she would pass on to the next generation. I agree with the fact that she becomes proud of her culture at the end of the story and even has more self-confidence. However I do believe Artense recognizes the importance of the stories and traditions, and feels honored to be the one to pass them down to the next generation. The story is about a young woman, Artense, and a brief glimpse of what it's like to "walk in her shoes.
She first tells a very vague story about people from her childhood. She mentions her aunt, a few neighbors who lived near by, and her mother.

Her mother is now deceased. Artense seems to remember a few specific memories of her mother, including putting beer down the intravenous feeding tube for her mother and the story of how she got her dancing shoes. Artense has cancer, which is a terminal disease. Based on the story, and her brief description of the X-Ray showing her Cancer cells, Artense is blissfully unaware that anything is wrong. She just goes out dancing and smiling like nothing is amiss.
I did not really understand the story very well. In my opinion her story was more like an excerpt out of a diary than a story. The story was very depressing, and difficult to read because of the amount of stressful memories the author chooses to narrate. The theme of the story "The Dance Boots" is that even if there are more sad moments than happy ones, there's always something that can replace the sad memories.
Furthermore, I will talk about the significance of racism in the story and what it said about having high self esteem to get you through anything. As well, I am going to cover what I feel to be the most imperative as well influential subject matter of the story, which in my humble opinion was the boots. I will also give a conclusion in the end to finish off my final thoughts as well. The dance boots story talked about the racism that Native Americans experienced in the past and how each generation experienced far less than the previous generation did.
In the story they covered the topic of going to Indian jokes versus non Indian schools and how both were needed for their enrichment as a people. Moreover, this particular story documents generational changes in the experiences of the people that were discriminated against. In addition, the matter of having high self esteem and high self worth also played a huge part in this story because the teacher would always tell the pupil to never stop because they were strong. The main character in the story was the pupil of her aunt which was the teacher and the whole spot of the story was the exchange of knowledge from one person to another and the ensuring of traditions that would never die.
The goal of this story from my perspective was to show us that as long as traditions are passed down from generation to generation the person that they are being passed on to begins to embody the person that passed it on them.
The boots symbolized the passing of knowledge from person to another and how even at death rebirth occurs. In conclusion, I have learned that knowledge can live on forever if it is passed on to the right individual and that people never really die because they merely live on through others. Finally, the thing that I most enjoyed about the story was the getting a piece of the Native American experience.

By Ade Adewale. The first 20 pages of The Dance Boots is told from the perspective of Artense, an Indian woman, native American Indian, and the story focus on her aunt Shirley passing on the oral history of their family. There are sub issues around the importance of family in the Indian culture and the dance. The setting of the story is in the greater Duluth region of the United States near the boarder of Canada.
Interesting how the outside environment, the elements so to speak have played no roll in the story. But I suppose this story is focused on Indian families, dance, education, and the importance of oral history, so the environment might not be a character.
