Indian, "Indians always have secrets", "All of the Indians [in stories] must have tradgic features, eyes, and arms..heros must be half-breeds...", "White people don't call at 3 in the morning.", "Most smart Indians move away from the Rez.", "The Rez is a prison, the whole world is a prison.", "All the white people will be Indians and all the Indians will be ghosts."

Writer, "I think that nothing is real until I write it first.", "In the absence of enimies we destroy our beloved."
