Her suffering results to internal and external conflicts. The events that happen throughout the narration seem to divide rather than unite the characters. There is conflict between Ayah and the Whites, Ayah and her husband Chato, and she undergoes internal conflict. The conflicts experienced by the character's results from loss of traditional cultures and family ties. The consequences of the conflicts are that they result into mental anguish and suffering.

The conflict between Ayah and the Whites is the cause of all her tribulations. As the Whites began to take over the land belonging to the Native Americans, they began to lose their culture, and that is where the predicaments of Ayah started Silko The matter became complicated since the older natives told Ayah that learning the White man's culture would endanger her. The reader cannot help but sympathize with Ayah because of the disruptions brought forth by the White invasion.

The animosity between Ayah and the Anglo-American authorities heightens when they force her to surrender her children because she presumably infected them with tuberculosis Silko When the children come to visit her it is apparent that they might forget their language and customs, and this escalates the suffering of Ayah.

She reminisces how her mother and grandmother used to teach her about their traditions Silko Ayah would have loved to do the same with her children. Ayah recalls the buckskin moccasin shoes they traditionally wore, and she cannot help but scorn at the worn shoes she is wearing. Her remorse is evident when she remembers how her mother and grandmother would spun yarn and sew blankets. Ayah feels like an outsider when she realizes that life is no longer the same.

Times are changing and maybe she should do the same. American Indians have the assurance that they are one with nature as depicted by Ayah. Search and publish your papers. Login New user. My account.
