Misuse is abuse II
Cuthand, S. Ruth
This paper consists of four voices speaking about representation and the Trickster. Gerald Vizenor, Chippewa, is a professor of Literature at the University of California, Berkeley campus. His voice is in bold type and is excerpted from his article, "Trickster Discourse". Peter Blue Cloud, a Mohawk, is a writer of contemporary Trickster (Coyote) stories. His voice is in reqular type and is excerpted from his book The Other Side of Nowhere. My own voice is in italics and is excerpted from ruminations and mumblings in my mind. The fourth voice, on the transparent overlays, is the Trickster voice, also known as Coyote woman. She exists in all of us. Four voices, four points of view. Tribal discourse, farting bugs, process and journey.
