Leaphorn is disturbed by the scene at the commune in Chapter 6. Instead of hippies and love and peace, he finds a leader wearing expensive boots who intimidates the teen girl who lives there. Although Susanne obviously cares for George and Ernesto, Halsey is obvious in his disdain of the boys and of the law or "fuzz." Leaphorn also finds another young man on a bad "trip" at the commune. How do these events foreshadow what Leaphorn learns at the end of the chapter?
Chapter 4 manages to raise a larger societal issue as Leaphorn recalls a plaque he once saw in a Native American school that read, "Tradition is the Enemy of Progress." Leaphorn recognizes that the Zunis have been better able to cling to their traditional ways than the Navajo. It is the loss of some of the old ways of the Navajo that have sent George in search of something in Zuni religion. Because of the teachings of his grandfather in the old ways, Leaphorn expresses sadness that other Navajo don't have this in their lives. Discuss how traditional ways guide Leaphorn in his daily life and in his role as a police officer.
In Chapter 5, the reader learns that the commune is named Jason's Fleece after the myth of Jason and the Golden Fleece. The Navajo have their own myths, such as that of Monster Slayer and Born of Water. Compare and contrast the myths of the different cultures in Dance Hall of the Dead and their symbolism.
