Today we were reading how Attean has to go through a” rite of passage”, a test where he must stay alone in the forest without food for days and days until he discovers his manitou or personal spirit. I found a link to a site which explains more about this tradition of the Illinois people here.
Choose a response:
If you were Attean, what would you do? How do you think you would feel during this ordeal? Can you create a magnified moment in a comment, writing as if you were Attean?
When Attean returns to his village, having found his manitou, he is given a new warrior name, such as Strong Wolf. What name would suit him best given what you know of his character from the story? Explain your thinking supporting your ideas with evidence from the book.
