In the book, The Absolute True Diary of a Part Time Indian, people only see things from one perspective. Viewing something form one perspective means viewing it from one persons eyes. If we only view somethings from one person, we wouldn't know how the other people feel. An example would be in the documentary that we watched in class, we wouldn't know that they have no food and that their living conditions are very poor. Also, people weren't allowed to use the same bathroom as us, they had to sit in the back of the bus until someone looked at their live through their point of view and realized how hard life was.
