The Pearl

In chapter 4, why do Kino’s own people seem to always side with the colonists on important issues? What are some examples of this? Why do you think this is the case?

This is for my language arts discussion questions for The Pearl by John Steinbeck

This has been the status quo and "order of things" for generations. The villagers did not want to upset it. They lived in poverty but they were happy. They also feared Kino's individualism and rebellion.
