Why can't the boys live on the reservation in Medicine River, and why is this especially unfair to Rose?
In Medicine River, Rose goes against the norms of the reservation and is forced to leave. Instead of marrying another Native American, she chooses to marry a white man. This is not accepted on the reservation; therefore, Rose has to suffer the consequences of this decision. This is unfair because she should not be punished for marrying who she loves. Additionally, the letters and photographs found in Rose's room symbolize her difficult past.
