From the very start of her argument, Harjo uses the ethos-based metaphorical plea; the plea assists audiences to see the dismay of Native American burial violation or exploitation. In her first judgments, Harjo's efforts are to place audiences into her shoes. Harjo, in the thesis, argues that Americans Indians have concerns with the laws that make them the archeological assets of the United States and too little of the kind that defend them from abuse. The writer believes that the only existing law is there only for the ordinary Americans and not American Indians. The American Indians' rights are not protected in this case.

There are also no less than 4,500 other Indian people who were assaulted in the 1800s by the United States Army. These are there for "Indian Crania Study."
