Native American Artistic Irony
Dr. Gerald Vizenor
Tuesday, October 4, 7pm
Davis Auditorium, Sturm Hall
Native American earthdiver stories are communal scenes, a creative totemic union of stories, totems, participants, and readers, and rightly the stories are never the same. The trickster conceives a new world on the back of a turtle, and the creation is artistic irony.
