Example text

White Man’s Dog earns the name Fools Crow when he scalps the Crow chief Bull Shield. Fools Crow marries Red Paint, the daughter of Yellow Kidney, who has returned to the tribe. He further solidifies his reputation as a great warrior and leader when he kills a Napikwan who is an aggressive hunter of the wild game the Blackfeet depend on for survival. In the mortal struggle, Fools Crow is wounded by a gunshot. The cycle of killing and revenge continues. Yellow Kidney, who has gone off to be on his own, is shot and killed by a Napikwan seeking vengeance on Owl Child’s party of marauders.

What Vizenor perceived to be the activists’ egotism and opportunism are embodied in the outrageous behavior of the Solar Dancers. In his summary of the complaints against the native students, Provost Greene condemns the number of long-distance calls charged to the department by students. “Dependence on the oral tradition is no longer an acceptable explanation for so many expensive longdistance calls,” he says. The mystique and sexual prowess of the “warrior” is caricatured in the hand puppet Four Skins.

He was born on October 22, 1934, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to a father who was Chippewa and a mother who was Swedish American. His father was murdered when Vizenor was still young, and the crime was never solved. He spent his childhood between foster homes and the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota, where he was cared for largely by his father’s family. When he was fifteen, Vizenor’s stepfather died in a work accident; soon after, the young Gerald lied about his age to enter the Minnesota National Guard.
