The children represent the culture without the power. In 'Practicin', children who have not yet met prejudice share their play together as they did.  In their eyes it's all a game.  Here two opposing cultures are represented in the toys of each.  But as Pidgeon retrieves his unsuccessful boomerang attempt the battle ahead for his own personal values to be aligned to one thing or another is evident in his wild young eyes.
