‘Everywhere else in the world the white government sends food and medicine to people who are hungry and sick but not to the Indians. We get nothing, nothing, because the white man never defeated us … we have never been defeated, remember that … We are the people of the wind and water and mountains and we will not be talked into defeat.’

—Gerald Vizenor, ‘Custer on the Slipsteam (1)
