  • Some deserts have produced mystics. I suppose that in the time of the tribes, the plains and valleys of Iowa, Omaha, and Nebraska did too. By the time I was a pre-schooler in Québec, visiting the reservations was just a photo-opportunity for the white folks in the cities, including my parents. Yet, when playing cowboys and Indians in the English playgrounds of my childhood. I always chose Apache. I suppose it was the 1960s and there was something in the air I picked up. This photograph is proof of my affiliations.
