A 5/5 example of how to construct a SpartsWrite

Ohiyesa went to great lengths to assimilate to white culture and become Charles Eastman. He was forced to pick a white name, wear white clothes, and cut his hair as the white men did. He was taught by the schools of the white men and told to speak the way they did too. Though he assimilated well, after a while it was forced and wrong. Ohiyesa became Charles Eastman after spending a long time in the white culture.
