Arnold Spirit Jr., better known as Junior, is the main character in Sherman Alexie’s novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian. Junior is an intelligent fourteen-year-old Native American teenager that struggles to overcome racism brought about by his culture. The story is written with a humorous tone; however, the message of the novel is tragic. Society’s view of their race has grown to expect the Native American’s to fail, which in turn discourages them, strips them of their of their hope, and they continue to live in their poverty. Junior, who is the exception in Sherman Alexie’s novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, finds the courage to leave the reservation with hope of a better future. He does so even though he knows he will be faced with racism in the “White world”, to prove society wrong.

 

 

 

“We were supposed to make you give up being Indians. Your songs and stories and language and dancing. Everything. We weren’t trying to kill Indian people. We were trying to kill Indian culture.” (p. 35)
