The sky was seized as the very image of transcendence, and what seemed to be the orderly course of sun, moon, and stars suggested a time that transcended man’s—in short, eternity. It’s important that women know the consequences of their choices. Therefore, any estimation of the actual time of death would be working outside the realm of their expertise. Their belief consisted in the worship of nature. Since it was the term with which the Greeks knew the Eurasian tribes, it is possible that they used it to identify themselves when dealing with the Greeks, in the same way as today the "Native Americans" have widely adopted such general identification given them by others ‒ no matter if they are Algonquian, Athapaskan, Muskogean, Sioux, etc., peoples that are only remotely related to each other, and that surely do not refer to themselves as "Native American" in their own languages.

Some of the personal growth takes place in the residence halls where you learn things like tolerance and how to get along with different kinds of people. Where Rose’s professed folkloristic expertise seems limited to differentiating among basic genres of folklore, Hansen’s professional training is evinced in his categorization of individual myths. While the town’s earlier acknowledgement of the power of Janie’s voice holds the promise that she will eventually be able to share her boon with them, she realizes that there are people in Eatonville who are not ready to benefit from the knowledge she has acquired.
