From the title of the chapter, “Shaman,” we know that the narrator sees Brave Orchid as a powerful and wise person. She understands that her mother was not simply a medical doctor in China, but also a “shaman,” someone able to mediate between the physical and spiritual realms and destroy evil spirits. Brave Orchid left the safety of her culture and not only earned her diploma, but exceeded all expectations. The diploma was a source of pride and accomplishment, but most of all it set her apart and made her a woman warrior.
