“An Indian Story” by Roger Jack Essay

In An Indian Story by Roger Jack is an example of family solidarity and solicitude giving inside a minority family. When Jack was just a young boy, his commence died, then his father remarried and started a new family that made the boy uneasy with his living situation. After that, he decided to go living with his new-made mothers sister, Aunt Greta. It is an evident that even before he decided to move with Greta, Jack was very close to her when he stated, I walked to Aunt Gretas house and asked if I could move in with her since I had already spend so much time with her anyway(53). This is our send-off example of the strong ties to extended family in this story. As the story progresses we subscribe to that Greta has sacrificed not only for her nephew but for her father as well.Greta had been married for a long time but her husband just died five geezerhood into their marriage. The reason why Greta and her husband never had any children and she never remarried was because she to ok care of her father after her mother died. The fact that Greta looked after her father demonstrates some other tight family pose and support for one another but it was too evident that the two share a close relationship. The author states, She Greta had so much love and knowledge to share, which she passed on to me naturally and freely (53). Hence, custom was very important to Gretas family as well as their Indian culture and Greta shared it with Jack. During the years, Jack and his aunt form an even stronger bond and she became a mother to him as they shared many adventures together.
