Answer as written by the student:

Psychological Report on Zitkala-Sa

By (your name), (your designation)

Zitkala-Sa is a Native American woman who has been forced to attend a boarding school run by white Americans. She has experienced several forms of discrimination, oppression and violence at the school, which have affected her mental and emotional health. The following are some of the main issues that she faces and some possible solutions to help her cope:

  • Loss of cultural identity and dignity: Zitkala-Sa has been stripped of her long hair, which is a symbol of her heritage and pride. She has also been forced to wear clothes, shoes and accessories that are alien to her culture and uncomfortable for her body. She has been taught to speak, read and write in English, and to follow the rules and norms of the white society. She has been made to feel inferior and ashamed of her own culture and traditions. To overcome this issue, Zitkala-Sa needs to reconnect with her roots and reclaim her identity. She can do this by learning more about her history, language, literature, art, music, religion and spirituality. She can also join or form a support group with other Native American students who share her experiences and feelings. She can also express herself through creative outlets, such as writing, painting, singing or dancing.
  • Trauma and anger: Zitkala-Sa has been subjected to physical and emotional abuse at the school. She has been dragged, beaten, cut, mocked, ridiculed and humiliated by the teachers and staff. She has also witnessed the suffering and death of some of her friends and classmates. She has developed a deep resentment and hatred towards the white people who have harmed her and her people. She has also lost trust and faith in herself and others. To overcome this issue, Zitkala-Sa needs to heal from her wounds and release her anger. She can do this by seeking professional help from a therapist or a counselor who can help her process her emotions and trauma. She can also practice mindfulness, meditation, yoga or other relaxation techniques that can help her calm her mind and body. She can also find healthy ways to channel her anger, such as activism, advocacy or education.
  • Isolation and loneliness: Zitkala-Sa has been separated from her family, community and homeland. She has been cut off from the people who love her and understand her. She has also been alienated from the people who surround her at the school. She feels like she does not belong anywhere or to anyone. She feels like she is alone in the world. To overcome this issue, Zitkala-Sa needs to reconnect with her loved ones and find new friends. She can do this by writing letters, making phone calls or sending emails to her family and friends back home. She can also visit them during holidays or vacations if possible. She can also make friends with other students who share her interests, hobbies or values. She can also join clubs, teams or organizations that offer social opportunities and activities.

Zitkala-Sa is a strong and resilient woman who has survived many hardships and challenges in her life . She has also shown great courage and creativity in telling her story and sharing her voice with the world. She deserves respect, compassion and support from everyone who reads or hears her story.
