Junior says that the best thing about the reservation is his grandmother. She is a tolerant individual, he explains, which comes the fact that she has retained her old-school Indian values. Years ago, Indians used to be tolerant of homosexuality and the mentally ill, for example. However, the influence of Christianity and western values has caused Indians to lose this accepting spirit. Junior’s grandmother, though, is different. At least she was - Junior reveals that she recently passed away after being hit by a drunk driver. Nevertheless, Grandmother Spirit's last request was for her family to forgive the man who killed her.
