Dene Oxendine

Write a 1,000 – 1,200+ word character analysis of Dene Oxendene, the protagonist of Tommy Orange’s chapter excerpt, “Dene Oxendene” from his novel There There.

Explain who he is, how he got to be who he is, and how he identifies himself as a Native American.
Remember that characters are revealed by what they say, what they do, what they think, what others say about them, and the setting in which they move.
Essays must also connect his character in some way to Orange’s “Prologue.” To that end, please reference at least one quote from the “Prologue.”
