The classic memoir by one of the most celebrated Indigenous writers of the modern era, Interior Landscapes offers an unforgettable glimpse of the life and world of Gerald Vizenor. Vizenor writes about his experiences as a tribal mixedblood in the new world of simulations; the themes in his autobiographical stories are lost memories and a "remembrance past the barriers." The chapters open with natural harmonies and the premier union of the Anishinaabe families of the crane and the first white fur traders. The author bares his fosterage, his ambitions, his contentions with institutions and imposed histories; his encounters as a community advocate, journalist for the Minneapolis Tribune, university teacher, critic, and novelist. Vizenor celebrates chance, or "trickster signatures" and communal metaphors in these pages: he was hired to teach social sciences at Lake Forest College, his first experience as a teacher, because the head of the department admired his haiku poems; he toured the armorial emblems at Maxim's de Beijingwhen it opened on October 1, 1983, in the People's Republic of China; he wrote about the suicide of Dane White and the murderer Thomas White Hawk; he rescued his dreams from the skinwalkers at the Clyde Kluckhohn house in Santa Fe, New Mexico; and, as an editorial writer, he followed the American Indian Movement from Custer to Rapid City, from Calico Hall on the Pine Ridge Reservation to Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Teasing, revealing, and irresistible, Interior Landscapes charts the fascinating life of a brilliant Anishinaabe writer.

The new edition contains a wealth of new photographs and information on the journey of Gerald Vizenor.

Gerald Vizenor, a member of the White Earth Anishinaabeg, is a professor of American Studies at the University of New Mexico. His many books include Fugitive Poses, Manifest Manners, Hiroshima Bugi, and Survivance. He is the editor of the series Native Traces (SUNY) and Native Storiers (Nebraska).

"The Chippewa writer Gerald Vizenor is at once a brilliant and evasive trickster figure. . . He is perhaps the supreme ironist among American Indian writers of the twentieth century." -- N. Scott Momaday

"Instead of trying to walk the thin, often invisible line between art and politics, history and future, Vizenor dances on both sides, knowing all too well that in our time politics can become myth and vice versa."--San Francisco Review of Books

In memory of my father

Clement William Vizenor

Long before I wrote stories, I
listened for stories. Listeningfor themis something more acute than
listeningtochildren know stories are them. . . . Listeningthere.
When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping
for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.

Eudora Welty,One Writer’s Beginnings

Childhood is give to us as ardent
confusion, and the rest of life is not time enough to make sense of it or
explain to ourselves what happened.

Michel Tournier,The Wind Spirit

If one lives in a compact, serried
group, as bees and sheep do in the winter, there are advantages; one
can defend oneself better from the cold and from attacks. But someone
who lives at the margins of the group, or actually isolated, has other
advantages; he can leave when he wants to and can get a better view
of the landscape.

Primo Levi,Other People’s Trades

By his very nature the half-blood
epitomized the integration . . . of the red and the white races, provided
a dramatic symbol of the benign possibilities or malign probabilities
inherent in this encounter.

William Scheick,The Half-Blood

What is true for writing and for a
love relationship is true also for life. The game is worthwhile insofar
as we don’t know what will be the end.

Michel Foucault,Technologies of the Self
