These are the ways that the Native American oral tradition plays an important role...The movie Smoke Signals gave me a good insight on what life is like on an Indian reservation in modern times.The plot would focus more on Victor if Thomas wasn't narrating in bits.

He thinks that his father treated Thomas better, the way he should have done his own son.

All of these sort of under running problems are spelled out in the flashbacks.

Arnold lived with the guilt of knowing that he killed Thomas's parents.

He knew he had to stay around his family long enough for Victor to grow up, so he turned to alcohol to help him cope with his guilt.

Victor is angry and resentful of his father, for being a terrible parent and for leaving him and his mother.

He is also jealous of Thomas because Thomas has better memories of his father than he dose.Story telling is a part of the Native American tradition that Thomas has really taken to heart.English: Thomas Jefferson Building, Library of Congress, Washington, DC, USA.In the movie, Arnold was only doing what he thought was right.He knew he was hurting his family by drinking; he thought that by leaving his family, not only would a burden be lifted off of their backs, but his also.So you get a sense that it is all one of Thomas's stories.The method strengthens the importance of Thomas's character.When Victor was old enough, Arnold left and went to Arizona where he stopped drinking.The main thing that I have learned from this movie is that living with guilt is a horrible thing.The stories are frequently about or concerning Victors father.The stories hit a nerve for Victor, and I don't think Thomas notices it.
