    In the book, They called me Uncivilized, I found that the most important lesson is to never forget who you are and where you come from. In the book, Walter Littlemoon struggles when he is shipped off to a boarding school. Walter begins to feel numb and loses the most important thing to him, his culture. I thought that this was the most powerful message in the book because everyone can forget about who they are or who they once were. Walter Littlemoon demonstrates his emptiness by saying” I don’t think we ever experienced how to be carefree boys… We had a hard time expressing ourselves”. Although Walter had troubles, he persevered and learned to not be ashamed of his identity. Walter didn’t let his past define him, or at least he tried not to. This book relates to everyone, because you should never lose sight of home no matter how lost you are.
