This is a performance experimental text with multiple speaking parts. Drawing from autoethnography, popular culture and history, I argue, following Walter Benjamin, that one way to write history is to quote history back to itself, thereby exposing the cracks and contradictions in official ideology. The ideology at hand involves the represented presence of Native Americans in two cultural landscapes, mid-central Iowa in the 1940s and 1950s, and Yellowstone National Park in the 1870s.
