Character notes for "To Give Suffering a Location"

These are the character notes for "To Give Suffering a Location."


Stefan Edgerly -- He has pale skin, brown eyes, and short messy hair streaked in lighter and darker shades of blond. He has a thin mustache and beard of darker brown. He wears glasses. He is left-handed. He is 18 years old in 2015, just starting his sophomore year of college. Stefan's father molested and beat him, leaving him with intense and conflicted feelings. Stefan believes himself to be broken beyond repair. He has a hard time asking for help or trusting anyone. He overcompensates for his sensitivity by being adventurous to the point of reckless. Stefan takes refuge in physical sensations, seeking out intense sports with a high risk of injury, like skateboarding and stickball. Such injuries raise less suspicion than patterned cuts or bruises, so they're much easier to conceal than the cutting he also does on occasion. He is evasive and insecure with other people, but a part of him still craves caring attention. Stefan is studying toward a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Pre-Health Professions with a minor in Healthy Lifestyle Management at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He is the roommate of J'aeson Deyo. Stefan hopes to work in sports or fitness. He tends to wear outdoorsy clothes, especially in shades of blue, and he collects skateboard T-shirts.

This class uses sports, exercises, and everyday activities to demonstrate principles of physics and related sciences. Students explore mass, momentum, velocity, and mathematical concepts such as curves and angles. They use such diverse tools as skateboards, playground equipment, shopping carts, and balls of different shapes to learn about how things move and the forces that act upon them. This class suits students who learn by touching, doing, or observing better than by reading formulae from a book.

"City Indians" is a term for those who moved from a reservation to a city as part of a relocation program, and also applies to their descendants. While local-America transported people as far from home as possible, and scattered them instead of settling them together as promised, Terramagne-America did somewhat better. They put batches of people from the same reservation or tribal culture into apartments or multiplexes together, and offered job training. They also measured success based on 5-year rather than 1-year settlement. While the program was still plagued by racism, poverty, and other challenges it did result in considerably more Native Americans living in cities, and the cities participating in the program typically still have tribal subcultures today.

The boy in front is Rylan Grant. The brunette girl is Elana "Elli" Big Elk. The two boys in the middle are brothers, Chase; Logan is bending over and Nathan has his hood up. The blonde girl is Cheryl LaFlesche. The boy in the back is Dannel Blackbird.

African American and Diasporic Studies Minor is the interdisciplinary study of American history, literature, politics, social sciences, education, and the arts through the prism of the African American experience. African American and Diasporic Studies enables students to investigate, more widely, areas in the Humanities and Social Sciences connected to their major or track, to help them develop cultural competency (applicable to medicine, social work, pharmacy and other professions). As contemplatives in action, students and faculty will draw from the study of the African American experience to engage with the local, national and global community as men and women for others. Independent studies and independent research are available to advanced students.
